THOMASTON, Ga. (AP) - Federal Aviation Administration officials say they're investigating a small plane crash in middle Georgia.

FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says a single-engine plane registered to an owner in Franklin County, Fla. crashed Monday near Thomaston, which is about 45 miles west of Macon.

Upson County Sheriff Dan Kilgore says a man and woman aboard the plane were en route to Jackson, Ga. from Dog Island, Fla., at the time of the crash. Kilgore says the plane was built in 1941 and landed in a rural area. Kilgore says the male passenger was hospitalized with minor injuries and the female passenger was not injured. Authorities could not provide additional details on the extent of the man's injuries.

Bergen says the cause of the crash is under investigation.
