Two men walked away from a plane crash with injuries. The Cessna 172 went down last night, near Port Allen, off Highway 190. Authorities said the pilot called in with engine trouble around 9:00 pm. He eventually told air traffic control he was not going to make it to the airport. The plane landed in a cane field and flipped. Authorities say he and the passenger were able to get out of the aircraft. They were then sent to the hospital with injuries.
