NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

A small plane crashed into a field in Somerset County, N.J. on Wednesday morning.

It happened off of Sunnymeade Road in Hillsborogh Township before 11 a.m. Video from the scene showed the damaged plane flipped near a group of trees.

It appeared that the plane had hit trees on the way down. The wings were not attached to the plane after the crash.

Victor Holmlund, 73, of Hillsborough, was at the controls, the AP reported. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. The AP reported that he is the owner of the plane and was the only person on board.

Crews were investigating a fuel leak from the damaged plane.

The FAA says the single-engine amateur-built Auriga aircraft plane was trying to land at the nearby Central Jersey Regional Airport.

Conditions were hazy at the time of the incident, but it's not known if weather played a part in the crash.
