No one was injured in a plane crash Saturday in a field near East Thome Road and Calhoun Drive, south of Rock Falls.
The crash happened shortly before 6 p.m. when a white 1966 Cessna 150 was being flown by 60-year-old Daniel Gryder of Hampton, Georgia, a news release says.
State police parked on Interstate 88 at Milepost 42 saw the plane flying very low, the release says.
The plane continued to descend and eventually crashed into a field. Troopers found the downed Cessna 150 and confirmed the pilot and passenger, 42-year-old Matthew Mansell, of Napoleon, Mo., were uninjured.
Both refused medical attention.
Illinois State Police, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will continue an investigation.
