Denton County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Sandi Brackeen said the aircraft went down off U.S. Highway 380 near the town of Krum at about 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The pilot was experiencing engine trouble and was forced to land, officials said.

The Krum Fire Department said the pilot landed in a field on the south side of 380, then bounced over the highway, while staying low enough to avoid hit power lines. The plane then came to a stop near the intersection of George Owens Road and 380.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
