(Brogue) -- State police say two people are being treated for injuries after a small plane crashed shortly after takeoff at a rural airport in southern York County.

Trooper Rob Hicks said the crash occurred around 10:30 a.m. this morning at Baublitz Commercial Airport near Brogue.

Hicks says the plane hit some utility lines, resulting in a power outtage in the area.

The 20-year-old pilot and his passenger, a 61-year-old man, were both taken to York Hospital. Their injuries weren't considered life-threatening.

Neither man was identified. Hicks says the crash is under investigation.
