The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says four people suffered non-life threatening injuries when a small airplane carrying skydivers made a forced landing in a field near Skiatook.

OHP Trooper Dwight Durant said the plane had seven people on board when it made a hard landing shortly after 11 a.m. in a field north of Highway 20 in Osage County and that none of the injuries appear serious.

Durant said the pilot told troopers that the plane lost engine power at about 1,000 feet after taking off from the Skiatook airport.

Television images show the aircraft with the tail crumpled sitting in a grassy field near a barn.
