A small airplane has crashed in northeast Kansas, and its pilot was taken by helicopter to an area hospital with serious injuries.

Kansas Highway Patrol spokesman Casey Simoneau says the pilot took off from a private residence in an ultralight aircraft around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday, lost control of the plane and crashed into a tree.

The plane went down in Douglas County, southeast of Lawrence.

The pilot's name wasn't immediately available. He was taken to Kansas University Medical Center, where Simoneau says he was in serious condition.
