VICKERY, Ohio (AP) -- A pilot whose crop duster crashed into the back of a barn in northern Ohio walked away with only minor injuries.

Authorities in Sandusky County say they're not sure what caused the plane to crash while the pilot was spraying pesticide on corn Monday night.

It hit the barn, but the fuel tanks on the single-engine plane didn't rupture.

Authorities did not release the name of the pilot who was treated at a hospital for minor injuries. They say he walked away from the wreckage and was waiting for emergency workers to arrive.

The crash happened about 40 miles east of Toledo near the town of Vickery.
