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.
