A pilot is recovering from injuries he suffered when his crop duster crashed in far southeastern Kansas.
KOAM-TV reports the plane went down shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday near an industrial park north of the Cherokee County town of Crestline.
Sheriff David Groves identified the pilot as a 48-year-old man from Cherokee County. The sheriff says the pilot was able to walk away from the plane to find the landowners and call emergency crews. His injuries are described as non-life-threatening.
The sheriff's office says the plane was carrying a fungicide, but adds that there was no danger from the chemical following the crash.
