FAIR OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Officials say the pilot of a small plane escaped with only minor injuries after he was forced to land at a Northern California park.

The single-engine Piper PA24 landed at a park in the Sacramento County city of Fair Oaks a little after 2:30 p.m. Thursday.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane was heading from Salinas to Auburn when it experienced engine trouble.

The pilot tried to get to a nearby airport, but didn't make it.

KCRA-TV reports that a parked car was clipped during the landing.

The FAA plans to investigate.
