(WREG-TV) A Memphis couple had a close call when their small plane made a crash-landing in Texas.

Engine trouble may be to blame.

The plane even knocked out power to some homes when it landed in a park near Amarillo.

Pilot Joe Max Shelton tried to land at a nearby airport, but the plane lost power.

Shelton and his wife Sally were the only ones on board.

They were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
