MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A single-engine plane crashed on a road in Montgomery County, just south of Dayton, Thursday afternoon.

The pilot was on final approach to Dayton-Wright Brothers airport around 4 p.m. when the plane lost engine power, authorities say.

The pilot of the 1979 Piper fixed-wing, single-engine plane tried to land in a cornfield but worried about avoiding some power lines, so she switched plans to try for the roadway.

A BMW was struck as the plane came down on the road.

Authorities say no serious injuries were reported to the pilot and passenger of the plane. They were taken to a hospital to be checked out.

The driver of the car declined to go to the hospital.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating what happened.
