BILLINGS -

A Billings teen making her first solo flight crashed in a rugged area in the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. The good news is she walked away from the crash and is said to be okay.

According to the Park County Sheriff's Department, 17-year-old McKenzie Morgan became disoriented during her training flight and crashed. Her flight started in Laurel and made several stops.

Two hunters reported seeing the plane go down near the abandoned mining town of Kerwin and they called for help. The hunters found McKenzie who was able to get out of and walk away from the plane. One of the hunters then took her by horseback to emergency personnel.

The report says she had minor injuries but was taken to West Park Hospital as a precaution.
