     SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a crash landing near a private airstrip west of Spearfish that left one man with minor injuries.
     The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says 62-year-old John Widdoss of Spearfish and his passenger, Justin Bierschwale of Texas, were forced to land the Cessna 175 at about 6 p.m. Tuesday. Its front landing gear was torn from the plane causing the plane to skid to a stop in a hay field.
     Widdoss, who suffered minor injuries, and Biershchwale were able to get out of the plane before it started on fire. The fire destroyed the plane and sparked a two-acre grass fire. Emergency crews were able to put the fire out.
