FRANKENMUTH, Mich. (AP) - Officials say four people aboard a small plane that went down near the Frankenmuth airport got out of the aircraft and were able to walk away from the crash site.

The single-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff Sunday evening into a field near William "Tiny" Zehnder Field, about 75 miles northwest of Detroit.

The Frankenmuth fire department says two passengers were taken a Flint hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The fire department says the pilot and the other passenger sought their own treatment.

Police say the pilot is a 25-year-old Livonia resident. The passengers were identified as two Livonia men, ages 56 and 57, and a 26-year-old Royal Oak woman.

The fire department says the pilot reported that the plane lost power. Frankenmuth police and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
