EGELAND, N.D. (AP) - A crop duster plane crashed while spraying a field east of Egeland but the pilot was unhurt.
The Towner County Sheriff's Office says Nathan Murdoch of Nehawka, Nebraska was making a pass over the field at about 1:45 p.m. Saturday when the engine stopped.
Murdoch was already low to the ground and landed the plane in a field just north of Highway 66.
The plane suffered some minor damage on the hard landing.
The incident is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration.
