A small plane that was carrying skydivers crash-landed near Luling Airport Tuesday afternoon.

Video from the scene shows the single-engine plane crashed into a field just south of the airport. Out of the five people on board the plane, three were taken to the hospital and the rest declined treatment, according to the Caldwell County Office of Emergency Management’s Facebook page. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the pilot and two passengers were injured but the extent of their injuries are not known at this time. The pilot was taken by medical helicopter to Seton Hays County.

Aviation records show the Cessna 182 plane was built in 1963. The Luling city manager confirmed Skydive Lone Star owned and operated it.

Numerous agencies from Luling responded to the crash. DPS, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation and Safety Board are currently investigating.
