DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Emergency responders rushed to the Sky Acres Airport in Lagrangeville after a small plane flipped over on Sunday afternoon.

A single engine fixed wing Cessna Skyhawk II was attempting to land on Runway 17 at around 1:30 p.m. when it ran off the east shoulder and came to rest overturned in a small pond, state police said.

The aircraft was carrying the pilot and three other passengers at the time of the crash, police said. One passenger was transported to MidHudson Regional Hospital with minor injuries, according to authorities.

The Federal Aviation Administration was notified of the investigation.

The airport closed around the time of the incident.
