Two people escaped serious injury when their single-engine plane crashed in a hay field in western Wisconsin.

According to Pierce County authorities, a Cessna C-185 had engine trouble before crashing about 10:10 p.m. Wednesday in the town of Clifton.

Campillo was the pilot of a craft owned by David Meyer.

Pierce County deputies continue to investigate. And they've notified the FAA.
