CROWLEY, La. (AP) - A small plane crashed in Acadia Parish but the pilot parachuted out and suffered only minor injuries.

Acadia Parish Sheriff's spokeswoman Maxine Trahan says Friday's crash was reported around 3 p.m. in the Midland area.

It involved what the pilot called an experimental "aerobatic" plane. The pilot told deputies he experienced a problem with the plane at about 2,500 feet.
