Tulsa police responded to a small plane crash Wednesday resulting in minor injuries at Jones Riverside Airport.
Officers were called around 8:40 a.m. after a Cessna Skyhawk 72R flipped in front of a control tower, Officer Jillian Roberson said.
Investigators are still working to determine the cause, but the plane was apparently being taxied at the airport by a man who was not a pilot, she said.
Medics treated and transported the man, who suffered minor hand injuries, Roberson said.
The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to respond. The incident is being considered an industrial accident, she said.
