Pilot injured in small plane crash in Snohomish

SNOHOMISH — A single-engine plane crashed Saturday morning south of Harvey Field.

The pilot, a 78-year-old Snohomish man, was taken to a local hospital with possible head injuries according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. He was conscious and alert at the time. No other passengers were on board and no one on the ground was injured.

Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies responded at about 10 a.m. to the 9700 block of 111th Street SE. Witnesses reported that the plane had apparently lost power and clipped some trees before landing in a slough.

The plane was not fully submerged, according to officials. The Environmental Protection Agency has been notified to address possible contamination issues. The National Transportation Safety Board has also been alerted and will conduct an investigation into the cause of the crash.

The plane is a 1946 Republic RC3.
