WINCHESTER, TN (AP) - Authorities are investigating a small plane crash in Winchester, Tennessee, that injured five people on board.

Media report the Mooney 21 crashed around 2:30 p.m. Saturday shortly after taking off from the Winchester Municipal Airport.

Officials say the plane struck some power lines. It apparently landed on its belly, and never flipped over.

The individuals on the plane were treated for non-life threatening injuries. They have not been identified.

The exact cause of the crash has yet to be determined, but investigators say the plane was only supposed to seat four people.
