BARBOUR COUNTY, Ala. (WTVY) — Two men have been transported to Barbour County Medical Center after a plane crash in Clayton, AL.

Barbour County Sheriff Leroy Upshaw reports both have non-threatening injures.

Sheriff Upshaw says that the plane was traveling from Valdosta, GA to Tuscaloosa, when the plane’s engine stalled while in the air at 6,000 feet.

The pilot tried to land the plane on County Shop Road, but struck a tree limb 30 feet from the ground during their descent, causing the plane to crash.

The scene is secure at this time.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
