DELLE -- An 83-year-old pilot is injured after crashing his small plane over the weekend while taxiing on a Tooele County air strip.

The single-engine Cessna hit a large pile of gravel and tipped forward, crashing nose-first into the ground about 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

Witnesses say the pilot was conscious and walking, but had cuts on his head and injuries to an arm and a leg.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
