Plane Makes Hard Landing In Hollister; 1 Injured

HOLLISTER, Calif. (AP) — A pilot has been injured after a single-engine plane lost engine power and made a hard landing in central California.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the Beechcraft A45 was substantially damaged after landing in a field at the west end of Hollister Municipal Airport Saturday.

The pilot was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The plane was registered to John Cahners of Palo Alto.

A call to his office was not immediately returned.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.
