BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - The State Highway Patrol says two Michigan men suffered minor injuries when their small plane crashed in northwest Ohio as they were attempting a touch-and-go landing at a small airport.

The patrol's Bowling Green post says the aircraft's nose struck the ground, flipping the plane on its top Thursday morning.

The patrol said the two men onboard the small Cessna plane were student pilot Christopher L. Sackett and instructor Daniel C. Walker, both from Michigan.

A patrol dispatcher said the hometowns for 46-year-old Sackett and 49-year-old Walker were not immediately available.

The dispatcher says the two men were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
