DELAWARE COUNTY — A small plane crashed Thursday evening in Delaware County, just outside of Muncie, according to state police.

Delaware County Sheriff's Office deputies responded around 8:30 p.m. to the crash in the 5600 block of South Meeker Avenue.

The pilot, a local elderly man, was the one occupant on the plane at the time of the crash, ISP Sgt. Coley McCutcheon said. He was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The sheriff's office has asked Indiana State Police to take over the incident, McCutcheon said. Federal authorities are not responding for any investigation or follow-ups.
