Passengers safe, one with minor injuries after plane crashes into Lake Travis

One woman was taken to the hospital after a plane crashed into Lake Travis Saturday evening, according to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services. 

Two people refused medical treatment and one woman was transported to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Lakeway with minor injuries, ATCEMS said. 

The plane crashed just before 6 p.m. close to Starnes Island, near 6410 Hudson Bend Road.
