ST. MARIES, Idaho -- A couple flying over North Idaho escaped any serious injuries when their plane made a crash landing Saturday.

They were headed from Lewiston to Coeur d’Alene when the Cessna C180’s engine failed.

The plane’s right wing struck a tree on the way down, causing it to flip over. The plane landed on its top on private property near Alder Creek Road, not far from St. Maries.

The woman in the plane was airlifted to the hospital as a precaution. She suffered only minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
