CARDINGTON, Ohio (AP) — The state Highway Patrol says a pilot injured his arm when his single engine airplane struck a barn and crashed in a pasture.

Sixty-year-old Joe Dreyer, of Cardington, was piloting a Cessna 180 aircraft when he lost power attempting to land at his farm. Authorities say he struck a small pole barn before crashing. It happened around 4:30 p.m. Saturday in Westfield Township.

Dreyer was taken to the hospital and treated for an injury and burns to his left arm. He was the sole occupant of the plane.

An investigation is continuing.
