American author Richard Bach has been seriously injured in a plane crash.

The writer of the 1970s bestseller ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ hit power lines as he tried to land his private plane on San Juan island in Washington State.

Local media reported that Bach’s plane overturned and he had to be cut free from the wreckage.

His family says the 76-year-old suffered a head injury and broken shoulder. He is being treated at a hospital in Seattle.
