CROSS VILLAGE, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say one person was hurt when a small glider airplane crashed in a state park near the northern tip of Michigan's Lower Peninsula.

The Petoskey News-Review reports (http://bit.ly/19VxYdp ) the plane carrying two people crashed Friday night in Wilderness State Park. Park ranger Dave Goheen described the person's injuries as minor and the other occupant was unhurt.
