DILLWYN, Va. (AP) — A small plane crashed in a Virginia cornfield, injuring the pilot and his 11-year-old son.

Virginia State Police said in a statement that the Aviat A-1C-180 aircraft stalled out and crashed Tuesday in a Dillwyn field. Police say the plane took off from a private landing strip in Buckingham County and was flying in the area.

Police say the pilot, Justin Knight of Midlothian, was flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center, where he’s being treated for life-threatening injuries. His son and only passenger had minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The Federal Aviation Association and the National Transportation Safety Board have both been notified.

It’s the second crash in Virginia in as many days. A man was seriously injured Monday after crash-landing in a field.
