CASCO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — State police say an ultralight plane crashed in southwestern Michigan, killing the pilot.

Sgt. David Caswell tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that the single-person plane crashed about 12:20 p.m. Monday in Allegan County's Casco Township. The site is north of South Haven.

Eighteen-year-old Isaac Fleming tells WOOD-TV that he heard an engine sputtering, then a loud noise. He says he saw an airplane wing fall out of the sky.

Authorities say they found the wreckage in a corn field.

State police tell WWMT-TV that the 45-year-old pilot left Lansing, Illinois, in the morning and was heading for his home in the Hastings area. His name wasn't immediately released.
