WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a small plane to crash in Ocean Isle on Sunday.

The two passengers in the Cessna airplane only suffered minor injuries and were released from the hospital.

Ocean Isle Beach Police say Daniel Moskovitz of New York and Lauren Busskohl of Connecticut were flying from Connecticut to Myrtle Beach when they started having problems with their engine.

They tried to make an emergency landing at the Odell Williamson Airport when they say the plane crashed just short of the runway.

The crash happened just before 6 p.m. on Sunday evening.
