INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An engineer who works for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing was piloting a small airplane when it clipped some trees during takeoff and crashed in a field on the south side of Indianapolis.

A team spokeswoman says Jeremy Milless was leaving a gathering at the home of John O'Gara, Fisher's father-in-law and team manager, when the crash occurred Saturday.

Authorities say the 35-year-old pilot was walking around when rescue crews arrived and was taken to a hospital with a shoulder injury.

Federal aviation officials are investigating the crash.
