MILWAUKEE (AP) — Authorities say two people were taken to area hospitals after a small plane crashed in Hartford.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office says the plane crash was reported about 11:22 a.m. Saturday and occurred directly west of the Hartford Municipal Airport, in a cornfield.
The Journal Sentinel reports the man and woman in the plane, whose names and ages were not released were taken to separate hospitals with unknown injuries.
The woman, who was reportedly unconscious, had to be extricated from the plane. The man was conscious but appeared to be in shock.
This is the second reported plane crash in Wisconsin this week. On Thursday, a plane making its way to the EAA AirVenture from Indiana suffered mechanical issues causing the pilot to try to land the plane in a field. However, due to the field being wet, the plane flipped. Four passengers were aboard the plane at the time of the crash. No serious injuries were reported.
