A small plane has crashed in southwest Missouri, and a fire official says two people were injured but are expected to survive.

Republic Fire Department Capt. Joe Frahm says the private aircraft went down Wednesday night on the property of a high school in the town about 10 miles outside of Springfield.

He says the two occupants were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Frahm says the plane did not catch fire.

No further details were immediately available.
