LAKESIDE, Texas (AP) A pilot and a passenger have been hurt in the North Texas crash of a biplane during an attempted emergency landing on a gravel road.

The Tarrant County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened Wednesday night on private property in Lakeside, near Fort Worth.

Sheriff's spokesman Terry Grisham said Thursday that both men have injuries not believed to be life-threatening and were transported to hospitals. Their names and further details on their conditions weren't immediately released.

Grisham says the plane, an experimental aircraft made from a kit, crashed on a private gravel road as the pilot tried to make an emergency landing. Officials are trying to determine what prompted the emergency.

Grisham says the propeller ended up about 30 yards behind the wreckage.
