BRYAN, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says a Michigan was killed and a second injured when the small plane they were flying crashed at a northwest Ohio airport after veering to avoid another aircraft.

The Ohio patrol says the crash occurred about 8:30 Saturday morning at Bryan Aero Park near Bryan, about 55 miles west of Toledo.

Troopers say pilot Leslie Dean, of Ann Arbor, Mich., died Saturday afternoon at a Toledo hospital. The condition of his passenger, 51-year-old Kent Hyne (HYN), also of Ann Arbor, wasn't immediately known.

The patrol says Dean was trying to land the 2010 model, self-assembled single-engine aircraft on a grass runway when another aircraft attempted to land from the opposite direction. Troopers say Dean's plane lost power and crashed in a field north of the runway.
