ST. ANTHONY, N.D.—A small plane crashed west of St. Anthony, North Dakota in Morton County Tuesday morning.

The Piper Super Cub crashed in a field. The Morton County Sheriff’s Office says the plane sustained major damage, but the pilot and a passenger received only minor injuries, and were not transported for medical care.

The Sheriff’s Department said the plane was contracted by USDA to get rid of coyotes at the landowner’s request. A preliminary investigation showed the pilot was attempting to make a turn at low altitude, when the plane stalled.

The crash remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Aviation Administration.
