AMAGON, AR - A plane made an emergency landing in Jackson County on Highway 14 Sunday evening, just West of Amagon.

The incident happened around 7:00 p.m.

The Arkansas State Police say the pilot, 44-year-old Charles Beasley of Salado, and his son, were travelling in a small plane when the aircraft's engine failed.

After making an emergency landing, they were hit from the rear by a van driven by 64-year-old Betty Zorkowski of Batesville.

Zorkowski swerved to avoid the plane but failed.

The front passenger side window did make contact with the wing of the plane, causing the aircraft to crash into a nearby ditch.

No injuries were reported as a result of the accident, which was investigated by the Arkansas State Police and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department.
