Traill County Sheriff's Department said emergency crews responded to a report of a plane crash just after 6:00 P.M. Friday evening. The crash happened 5 miles north of Hillsboro, just off the south end of the runway at Sky Tractor. Sky Tractor is an agricultural aerial crop spraying business.

According to Sheriff Steve Hunt, the plane was coming in to refuel and reload with chemicals when the crash happened. The plane came down short of the runway, causing the plane to nose forward into the ground.

Only the airplane was damaged. The pilot wasn't injured.

The crash remains under investigation
