LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say the passenger on a small plane that crashed on a field in suburban Kansas City suffered serious injuries.

Lee’s Summit police Sgt. Chris Depue said in a statement that the Cessna 210 single-engine plane came to rest Sunday in a field on the edge of a park in the city. He says rescue crews removed the pilot and passenger from the plane and took them to hospitals.
