Authorities say a 60-year-old pilot has died after a small experimental plane clipped a tree and crashed in Genesee County.

The Flint Journal and WNEM-TV report the plane flown by Clifford Drochak of Oakland County's White Lake Township crashed Tuesday into the yard of a home in Mount Morris Township, and Drochak died at a hospital.

The plane had just taken off from Dalton Airport, which is nearby.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
