HURON, S.D. -- A Hawaii woman suffered minor injuries Tuesday in the emergency landing of a small plane near Huron.

Bruce Mayes, of Hawaii, was forced to conduct an emergency landing after experiencing engine troubles shortly after takeoff, according to Beadle County Sheriff Doug Solem.

Solem said Mayes was unharmed, but his wife, whose name authorities declined to release, sustained a cut to the head in the landing.

Solem said Mayes and his wife had touched down in Huron to refuel during a trip from Hawaii to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, when Mayes experienced engine trouble.

According to Beadle County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Olerud, Mayes was able to land safely despite skidding an estimated 200 yards in the pasture east of 27th Street Northeast and Sherman Avenue.

Olerud said the female passenger was then transported to a Huron hospital. He also said the Federal Aviation Administration will be investigating the crash.

The Beadle County Sheriff's Office was assisted by Huron police, fire and ambulance, as well as Beadle County Emergency Management.
