MONROE, Georgia — Federal authorities are investigating a small plane crash in Walton County.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says a Bellanca 17 aircraft carrying two people and two dogs crashed in a field about a mile southeast of the Monroe-Walton County Airport Saturday night.

Bergen says the pilot was scheduled to land at the Greene County Regional Airport but was diverted because of weather.

Walton County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Keith Brooks told WSB-TV the pilot was alert, conscious and talking to investigators when he arrived on the scene. Authorities say a woman suffered minor injuries.

The FAA is investigating the crash and Bergen says the National Transportation Safety Board will determine probable cause.

According to FAA records the fixed wing, single engine plane is registered to a Chattanooga, Tennessee man.
