MARSHALL COUNTY, Iowa — A pilot was able to walk away from an airplane crash near Marshalltown.

At about 5:45 p.m. Monday, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office was called out to a small aircraft accident northeast of Marshalltown.

They say Jason Stone, 31, was flying from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Marshalltown when he experienced engine troubles.

He was about two miles from the airport, when he made an emergency landing in a soybean field.

The sheriff’s office says the mud from the field caused the front wheel and nose to get stuck causing the plane to flip over its top.

Stone was not hurt.

The FAA is now investigating the crash.
