MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

One person was transported to the hospital after a minor plane crash in Midland County Saturday evening.

Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety tell us the crash happened just before 7 p.m. in a field west of S County Road 1270, two miles south of the airport.

We are told a Cessna N4707S aircraft left from the Midland International Airport at 6:45 p.m. en route to El Paso. That's when officials say the pilot began to experience engine problems, and could not pick up speed. That caused the plane to make a hard landing on the 42nd block of SCR 1270.

Midland Police say the plane had four people on board. One passenger was transported to Midland Memorial Hospital after complaints of back injuries.
