A small plane crashed onto a beach in Rancho Palos Verdes in Southern California Friday.

The plane landed upside down in shallow water, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. The pilot was the sole occupant and suffered minor injuries but is alert and talking.

The pilot was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, LASD Leiutenant Vicki Stuckey said to The Huffington Post.

The plane is a Piper PA-18 “Super Cub” N224T and was towing an advertising banner before it crashed, Allen Kenitzer, spokesman for the FAA, said to HuffPost. The National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are investigating the accident, with the NTSD taking the lead, he said.

“The NTSB investigator usually posts a basic preliminary report on the agency’s website, within a week or two of an accident,” Kenitzer said. “However, it typically takes NTSB months to come up with a probable cause for accidents.” He said the NTSB and the owner’s insurance company will handle moving the crashed plane.

The emergency call came in at 11:42 a.m. Friday.
