CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) - A pilot is suffering minor injuries
after his small plane lost power and plummeted into a Utah
backyard.

ABC News 4 of Salt Lake City reports the 56-year-old man was
flying from Carson City, Nev. to Georgia Sunday afternoon and lost
power.

Authorities say the pilot was trying to glide into an airport in
southern Utah but didn't have enough altitude to make the move and
crashed into the yard in Cedar City.

He had minor head injuries and was taken by ambulance to Valley
View Medical Center in Cedar City.

Nobody on the ground was hurt.
