Authorities say a small airplane has crashed in a field on the south side of Indianapolis.

Police and firefighters responded to the crash shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday.

Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman Angela Hiestand says the pilot was trying to take off from a field next to a house and didn't make it off the ground. She says firefighters at the scene told her the aircraft rolled.

She says the pilot was walking around when medics arrived, but was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
