Two people were taken to the hospital after a two-seat private plane crashed in Lexington, a fire department spokesman said.
The police and fire departments responded to the crash at 8:21 a.m. in the 4900 block of Athens Walnut Hill Road, which is between Old Richmond Road and I-75, according to Battalion Chief Jordan Saas.
Two people were on board. One occupant suffered minor injuries, Saas said.
But both were taken to the hospital for evaluation because they were involved in the plane crash, he said.
The plane was a single-engine Boeing Stearman B75N1, according to the FAA. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board were investigating.
The plane departed Blue Grass Airport about 8 a.m., said Amy Caudill, an airport spokeswoman.
Kentucky Utilities addressed power outages at the scene. The plane hit a pole, and there were power lines down, said police Lt. Chris Van Brackel.
Residents noted on social media that they saw the plane before the crash or previously flying in the area.
Tammy Burton commented on Facebook, “Hope all is ok. I saw this plane flying low in air on my way to work this morning.”
Eric Petty commented, “That bi-plane was a common sight here in Woodford.”
