A small plane made an emergency landing on an Evansville golf course. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

It happened Sunday afternoon at Helfrich Golf Course, off Mesker Park Drive.

Authorities told news outlets that four people were aboard the green and white single-engine aircraft.

They were taken to a hospital, with what police described as non-life threatening injuries.

The plane was reportedly flying from Taylorville, Illinois to Gallatin, Tennessee when it began having engine trouble near Evansville.
