Twin-engine airplane crashes in muddy field south of Dallas

FERRIS, Texas (AP) — Officials say a plane that apparently lost power in both engines has crashed in a muddy North Texas field in an accident that left the pilot slightly hurt.
KTVT-TV reports the nose of the Beechcraft B-60 appears to have been torn off in the crash late Thursday morning near Ferris, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Dallas. The left engine apparently broke off during the accident in rural Ellis County.
A Federal Aviation Administration statement says the pilot was alone and suffered minor injuries in the crash. FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the pilot reported both engines lost power on a flight from Addison Airport to Mexia.
Further details weren’t immediately available.
