OWASSO, Oklahoma -- The pilot of an ultralight aircraft was injured in a crash which happened in Owasso Sunday evening.

A Rogers County Sheriff's deputy said the pilot suffered a possible concussion and a possible broken rib when his single-seat craft crashed into a garage in the Timbergate edition about 6 p.m. 

The pilot was taken to a local hospital.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the pilot had just taken off and began to bank when, for an unknown reason, he tried to land it in a neighbor's yard where he crashed into a garage.  Investigators will try and determine a cause.

No estimates of the amount of damage to the garage or to the airplane were available.

The homeowner said this is the second time an aircraft has crashed on his property.
