A small plane crashed during landing at the Orange Municipal Airport Tuesday afternoon, leaving two people injured.
The two-seat aircraft appears to have skidded across a field and a runway before coming to a stop around 12:17 p.m.
The Orange Fire Department said two people were taken to an area hospital. The extent of their injuries was not yet known.
“A Vans RV 8 aircraft went into the grass after its nose gear collapsed as it landed on Runway 1/19 at Orange Municipal Airport,” the FAA said in a statement.
The plane is currently on its belly off to the side of the runway, with debris scattered nearby.
Orange Fire said fuel was spilled on the runway as a result of the crash.
According to FAA.gov, the plane is registered to a man from Klamath Falls, Oregon.
The FAA said they will investigate the crash.
