2 aboard crashed plane in Ohio treated for minor injuries

ORRVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a single-engine plane has crashed shortly after takeoff from a private airstrip in northeast Ohio.

Bishop says the occupants are believed to be a husband and wife. They were taken to an Orrville hospital for minor injuries. They were still strapped to their seats when medics arrived.

The crash occurred a short distance from a home.

Orrville is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Cleveland.
