2 escape small-plane crash in Monroe

MONROE — No serious injuries were reported Friday evening after a single-engine Cessna 172 plane crashed in Monroe. The crash was reported just before 5 p.m. at the airfield near U.S. 2 and 179th Avenue SE, Monroe police spokeswoman Debbie Willis said.

Two people were in the plane, a 69-year-old student pilot from Seattle and an 82-year-old flight instructor from Mountlake Terrace. The plane left Paine Field about 3 p.m. and overshot the runway in Monroe, Willis said. The plane went into the long grass and flipped over.

The Seattle man was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The Mountlake Terrace man was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration was notified. Monroe police were investigating.
