A small plane crashed Saturday morning just north of Baker leaving one person injured.
According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, a small single-engine, experimental plane flew into some powerlines and crashed around 6:30 a.m. Saturday as it was attempting to land at a private airfield.
The pilot was alert when emergency services arrived on scene and was transported to a nearby medical facility with non-life threatening injuries. He reportedly sustained minor injuries, according to the OCSO.
The crash knocked out power for some people in the Baker area and as of 8:30 a.m. Saturday power had not been fully restored.
The crash took place near Highway 189 off of Ray Vinson Road in Baker.
