A small, single-engine plane struck a tree and crash-landed in a field in Ravenna, Ohio, early Tuesday evening, injuring three people.
Ohio State Highway Patrol say that the 1994 Mooney plane experienced engine trouble and went down at 6 p.m. near North Chestnut Street and Route 14. The pilot reportedly looked for a safe place to land but the plane hit the top of a tree and crashed immediately after.
Witnesses told The Record-Courier they heard sputtering and noticed the plane flying very low before it crashed.
Lieutenant Michael Marcucci of the Ohio Highway Patrol said that the pilot had radioed Portage County Airport to say he wanted to land there but was unable to make it, instead crash landing 2.6 miles from the airport. The pilot was headed to Youngstown from Canal Fulton.
The 63-year-old male pilot from Stow, Ohio, was the most badly injured in the accident and was transported to Akron City Hospital on a Cleveland Metro Life Flight. The pilot's two passengers—a 37-year-old male and 40-year-old female—were also injured. The female, too, was transported by Cleveland Metro Life Flight to Akron City Hospital while the male passenger was taken by EMS to Robinson Memorial Hospital.
Federal Aviation Administration investigators were on the scene by 8:30 p.m. to take photos and make an assessment of what caused the crash.
