MOTT, N.D. (KFYR) - UPDATE (12/4 at 4:45 p.m.): Update on emergency plane landing near Regent that led to downed power lines

UPDATE (12/3 at 7:50 p.m.): Three people suffered minor injuries and were transported to the hospital after a single prop engine plane made a hard landing in an open field east of Regent Saturday afternoon, according to the Hettinger County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies say they are investigating the incident in connection with a power outage in the area.

ORIGINAL STORY (12/3 at 7:30 p.m.): Downed power lines are causing folks traveling on the Enchanted Highway just north of Regent to take alternate routes. Hettinger County Sheriff’s deputies say, for now, you should take Highway 8 or 22 if you’re traveling north or south. They say Highway 21 is unaffected and Regent can be entered from Highway 21.
