Spanish Fork • A small airplane made a crash landing Saturday afternoon in Spanish Fork, and both people on board escaped without any major injuries.

Officials with Spanish Fork City said the Piper Saratoga — a single-engine propeller plane — experienced an engine failure while approaching to land at the Spanish Fork Airport.

The pilot reportedly heard the engine sputtering before it failed. Officials said he made a mayday call and tried to land at the airport, but the aircraft didn’t have enough speed or altitude. He landed the plane in an open field, where it skidded across a street, clipped a power line, and came to a stop in the front yard of a house near 500 W. 1000 North.
