Type of Incident

As I was cruising at about 250 ft. my engine suddenly shut off. I made a safe landing nearest to the road that I could out of the corn field I was flying over. After getting my equipment home and tearing down the engine I found the problem was a seized crankshaft bearing on the prop side. Engine has around 110hrs on it.
