ELKTON, KY (WSMV) -

A Kentucky judge was injured when a small plane crashed soon after takeoff from a Todd County airport Tuesday afternoon.

The crash was reported before 5 p.m. in the area of Davis Mill Road in Elkton, which is near the Standard Field Airport.

Todd County Emergency Management Director Tim Pulley said the plane didn't have enough power to ascend after takeoff, and it crashed into a nearby field, ending up on its roof.

Two people were on board, including Circuit Court Judge Tyler Gill, according to Pulley.

Gill was injured, but the other person on board - whose identity has not been released - was uninjured.

Gill was transported to Gateway Medical Center with neck pain.   He was released from the hospital Wednesday morning.

Kentucky State Police and the Todd County Sheriff's Department are investigating.
