Pilot Suffers Minor Injuries in Kandiyohi Co Plane Crash

A pilot was injured when his single engine airplane overshot a private runway in Kandiyohi County Saturday morning north of Lake Lillian.

The pilot, a 67-year-old man from rural Atwater, suffered only minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
