HANOVER TWP., Ind. (CBS) — An engine problem forced the pilot of a small airplane to make an emergency landing Sunday afternoon in a field near Cedar Lake, Indiana.

The single-engine plane landed about 2:15 p.m. near 145th Avenue east of the state line in unincorporated Hanover Township, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office.

The pilot was the only person on board, and no one was hurt, sheriff’s police said.

The plane had taken off from Griffith-Merrillville Airport, about 20 miles northeast of where it landed. Federal Aviation Administration officials are investigating.
