FAA Investigates Plane Crash By Lake Elmo Airport

Minnesota NewsLAKE ELMO (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate a light plane crash near the Lake Elmo airport.

Washington County authorities received a call around 5:15 p.m. Saturday from the Federal Aviation Administration of a plane that needed to make an emergency landing.

The FAA said it had lost contact with the pilot, but the county’s communications center then received a call from either the pilot or passenger.

Crystal Kline, the center’s supervisor on duty Saturday night, says the plane crashed in Baytown Township, near the Lake Elmo airport. She says only superficial injuries were reported. One of the two people on board was brought to a hospital.

The FAA says the plane, which was substantially damaged, is a single-engine Piper 46. Spokesman Tony Molinaro didn’t have information about where the plane was coming from or going to. The plane is registered to a Lino Lakes company.
