A small plane had a hard landing in a field northeast of Goshen Friday evening.

According to our reporting partners at

, a two-seater plane landed in a field near County Roads 127 and 22 in Jefferson Township.

The plane was piloted by Warren Yoder, of Goshen. He was not seriously injured.

Yoder said that while he usually takes off and lands from the field, he came down too hard this time, breaking his landing gear. This was the first time he had flown this particular plane.

His plane rolled into a ditch, leaking out a bit of fuel. It was eventually pulled out by his tractor.

Yoder suffered a bloody nose, though he refused medical treatment.
