ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A small plane crashed Tuesday afternoon just west of Honea Path.
A single-engine Cessna plane went down in a grassy area along Barker Creek Road, coming to a rest near a house.
The plane took off from a private airport when the engine stalled, said Chris Branyon, chief of Craytonville Fire Department.
When the pilot attempted to turn the plane around, it clipped power lines and crashed into a field.
Landis and Jon Riddle were at their home when the plane came down on their property.
“We came out the door and then John went over to the fella and he was getting out of the plane at the time and appeared to be okay. Little disoriented but other than that he seemed to be okay at the time. And then I just called 911 while Jon went over,” said Riddle.
The pilot was taken to a hospital to be checked out.
We will update this story as more information is available.
