ELCHO, Wis (WSAU) There was a small plane crash Sunday afternoon in Langlade County. It happened around 1pm. The plane was attempting to make an emergency landing in a backyard near Elcho. The plane rolled over after touching down, and came to rest upside down.

A husband and wife were onboard. The husband, who was piloting the small plane, was able to walk away and call 9-1-1. The wife, who was a passenger, was injured. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Rhinelander, where her condition is not known. No names have been released.

The pilot said the plane lost power in mid-flight. The exact cause of the accident isn't known. The FAA will begin an investigation today.
