A crop-duster in northern Iowa got much closer to the crops than planned this morning.

Kossuth County Sheriff Steve Kollasch says Dennis Meyer of rural Whittemore was attempting to take off with his spray plane from their family-owned runway when his plane suddenly lost altitude, causing it to hit the runway, bounce over county blacktop B44 south of Whittemore and land in a bean field.

Sheriff Kollasch says fortunately, Meyer walked away from the crash uninjured. The incident is currently under investigation by the FAA.
