SCOTT, Wis. (AP) — Authorities have identified the pilot of a small plane who was injured after making an emergency landing in northeast Wisconsin.

The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office says 64-year-old Michael Kruswick, of Algoma, was the only occupant of the aircraft that went down about 3:30 p.m. Friday in the town of Scott. The sheriff’s office says Kruswick sustained non-incapacitating injuries.

Authorities say Kruswick called 911 when his 1959 Piper Cub lost power and had to make an emergency landing.

The crash remains under investigation.
