EASTVILLE, Va. (AP) — State police say a man is being treated for injuries sustained when the small aircraft he was piloting crashed in Virginia.


A news release Monday from Virginia State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya says the ultralight personal aircraft crashed in Northampton County just after 3 p.m. Sunday. It says the aircraft's engine cut off, causing it to drop, clipping a power line as it descended. It struck the ground in a field.


Anaya says the male pilot, 67-year-old Barry Y. Maggio, was being treated for injuries not considered life-threatening.
