A fire chief says one of two people on board a small plane have been injured after it crashed in rural south-central Pennsylvania.

Pleasant Hall fire Chief Dale Myers III says the crash was reported about 1:45 p.m. Sunday in Letterkenny Township. That's in Franklin County, about 50 miles west of Harrisburg.

The chief says the single-engine plane had two on board. An adult refused treatment at the scene, but a child was taken to Chambersburg Hospital with injuries that weren't believed to be life-threatening.

The pilot told authorities at the scene that the plane was hit by a shaft of wind which caused him to lose control. The plane then hit two trees and landed upside down.

Emergency crews did not immediately release the names of either person on board..
