Bakersfield, CA-- A small plane crashed south of Bakersfield near Bear Mountain Boulevard and Old River Road Saturday morning.
Two adults piloting the aircraft fortunately escaped with minor injuries.
Authorities said they were flying an 'Ultralight Aircraft', or basically a homemade plane.
Authorities told 17 News the plane was mostly used for recreation.
The aircraft clipped power lines before crashing into a cornfield causing a power outage for 400 residents in the area.
The plane clipped both a 12,000 and a 20,000 volt power line before crashing, forcing emergency crews to stop traffic to secure the live wires on the roads.
"The pilot and the passenger were able to self extricate," said Leland Davis, Kern County Fire Department.
"The passenger suffered a minor shoulder injury and took his own vehicle to the hospital."
The incident is being investigated by The National Transportation Safety Board.
