Plane crash-lands at Indy International, USA
A small, single-engine plane crash-landed at the Indianapolis International Airport just after noon on Friday, leaving one passenger injured, officials confirmed.
No one was killed in the crash, and Indianapolis Airport Authority spokesman Carlo Bertolini said airport operations were unaffected.
The plane is a single-engine Cessna owned by Erie, Colorado-based Aero Systems Inc., according to the Federal Aviation Administration Registry. Burtolini said it crash-landed at around 12:20 p.m. and came to rest in a grassy area near an old terminal.
Bertolini said the cause of the crash is still under investigation, and likely won’t be known for some time.
One passenger was injured in the accident, and taken by ambulance to receive medical treatment, according to police scanner traffic. The only other person on board was uninjured, Bertolini said.
The names of the two passengers have not been released.
