BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A plane crash has been reported Southeast of Arvin, according to the Arvin Police Department.
23ABC was on the scene and it was reported that the plane was upside down near Mullix Road and Tejon Highway.
The Kern County Fire Department said two males were piloting the area on a day flight, when they noticed smoke coming into cockpit. The KCFD said the males thought oil was leaking from the plane and decided to land.
The KCFD said the two males thought the area was safe to land, but didn't realize the terrain wasn't suitable for such a feat, which ended up turning the plane upside down once it touched the ground.
The two licensed pilots were taken to Kern Medical Center for observation after reporting minor scrapes and bruises.
