LAYTON, Utah — A small plane crashed and ended upside-down Saturday at a golf course in northern Utah, but both men aboard survived.

According to witnesses, the Cessna's lone engine sputtered to a stop and its wing clipped a tree before it crashed near a sand trap at the Valley View Golf Course in Layton, about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City.

Police say the pilot was treated for minor injuries at the scene while the passenger was taken to the hospital in fair condition. Their names weren't immediately released.

No one on the ground was injured.

The men flew from nearby Woods Cross to Logan earlier Saturday morning and were returning to Woods Cross when the crash occurred shortly after 10 a.m.

The crash is under investigation by federal authorities.
