Two Injured in Carver County Plane Crash
Two men are in serious condition after a small plane crashed this morning near the Hennepin-Carver County line.
The single-engine Cirrus plane went down around nine o’clock.
The pilot and his passenger had to be extricated from the plane and were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.
Authorities say the pilot radioed the Minneapolis tower to say he was having problems with a pressure gauge. Deputies then found the crashed plane in a field.
It was foggy when the plane crashed. Federal investigators are at the scene.

I hope their injuries are not life threatening.
The weather this morning was certainly IMC, but visibility was about 1.5 miles at Flying Cloud (FCM).
