    YOLO COUNTY – A pilot walked away after crashing into a cornfield in Yolo County on Wednesday.

    The crash happened in a cornfield north of the Yolo County Airport, southwest of Woodland, sometime before noon, Lieutenant Juan Ceja with the Yolo County Sheriff's Office said.

    The owner of the cornfield said he and first responders had a hard time finding the crash due to the tall crops but said the pilot was able to walk away from the crash. The pilot, who did not suffer any injuries, was located along County Road 95 north of County Road 27, Lt. Ceja said.

    The plane ended upside down with the door open surrounded by tall corn crops. No one else was onboard the plane.

    Lt. Ceja said deputies on scene were in contact with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). CBS Sacramento has reached out to the FAA and is working to get more information.
