NEW MADRID COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A hazardous removal team and sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a crop duster crash in New Madrid County.

It happened Monday evening on county Road 606 near Matthews.

We're told something happened during take-off and the plane ended up in a ditch. The pilot is expected to be okay.

It is not clear how badly the plane was damage but the sheriff's department says clean up crews are there because a significant amount of fuel leaked out of the plane after the crash.
