ROCKBRIDGE CO., Va. (WDBJ7) The pilot of a small plane made an emergency landing in a pasture field along 23 Millers Mill Way in Kerr's Creek of Rockbridge County Friday.

Fire officials say the emergency landing was due to engine problems. The engine was having issues receiving fuel.

The emergency landing caused a minor fuel leak due to the angle of the plane's landing.

The pilot plans to have a mechanic fix the plane before taking off from the field.

No one was injured.
