WADSWORTH, Ohio (WJW) – State troopers are investigating after a small plane crashed at Weltzien Skypark Airport in Wadsworth on Thursday.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol was called to the crash just after 5:30 p.m.
When troopers got there, they found the two-seater Cessna 152 flipped over in the grass between the runway and the taxiway.
According to the highway patrol, the pilot, an Aurora man, was trying to land the plane when it went off the left side of the runway, skidding and overturning onto its roof.
The pilot sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Akron General Hospital for treatment. He was the only person on-board the plane at the time.
The Federal Aviation Administration will conduct a more in-depth investigation into the crash.
