LOGAN, Utah (AP) _ A northeastern Indiana man has been released from the hospital after a glider he was piloting crashed in a remote part of northern Utah.

Cache County Sheriff's Office said 63-year-old David Abbott of Rome City, Indiana, suffered a back injury in the crash Sunday about 20 miles east of Logan Cache Airport. Logan Regional Hospital said Tuesday that Abbott had been discharged.
