Three people were injured when a twin-engine airplane had to make an emergency landing in a field about a mile from the Idaho Falls Regional Airport.
The Bonneville County sheriff's office says the airplane was having mechanical difficulties Thursday afternoon as it approached the airport and ended up landing in a recently plowed farm field, which helped cushion the landing.
Sgt. Jeff Edwards says all three occupants were out of the airplane when emergency personnel arrived. Two were able to walk. All three were taken to the hospital.
Authorities did not immediately release the names, ages and hometowns of the pilot and two passengers.
Idaho Falls fire officials say damage to the plane appeared limited to its wheels, landing gear and engines.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
