A small recreational plane was forced to crash-land Thursday morning after its engine failed, Santa Fe County spokeswoman Carmelina Hart said.  

The single-engine plane carrying two people crash-landed around 10 a.m. a half-mile south of Interstate 25 by Waldo Canyon Road.

Neither person was injured in the crash, but one suffered a minor laceration to the forehead, Hart said. 

The plane's engine failure was caused by the loss of engine power, Hart said. Both the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office and county fire department responded to the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration is handling the investigation, Hart said.
