HOOPER, Weber County — A woman was taken to a hospital Thursday after the small plane she was in crashed and flipped over in Hooper.

The crash took place about 3:44 p.m, according to the Weber Fire District. The aircraft involved is a small, single-engine plane, according to Weber Deputy Fire Chief David Reed.

The owners of the plane have their own runway and take off from their barn, Reed said. They had gone out for a flight on Thursday afternoon, but when they were coming back and preparing to land, the male pilot tried to avoid hitting a fence post and stopped too soon, flipping the plane over, Reed said.

The woman hit her head during the crash and was transported to a hospital as a precaution, he said. He did not think her injuries were severe.

The pilot was not injured, and there were no fires or road closures associated with the crash. There was a small fuel leak as a result of the crash, the fire district said.

Additional details about the crash weren't available Thursday.
