Small plane crashes in Butler County

BUTLER, Pa. — A homemade plane crashed Thursday morning into a Butler County horse pasture.

The private plane crashed into a pasture in the area of Royal Oak Drive in Penn Township, just three miles from the Butler Airport.

The plane also missed a man by just a matter of feet, but he didn't hear it coming because of his lawnmower.

"He (the pilot) was already out of the plane. He had a cut on his head and was walking around. He seemed OK," said John Ehrhart.

According to airport officials, the pilot lost power shortly after takeoff and was trying to turn back when the plane went down.

No injuries were reported and the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
