BOTHELL — Two people suffered minor injuries when an experimental aircraft crashed Tuesday evening near Canyon Park north of Bothell.
They were heading to Paine Field when the engine failed, hit high tension power lines and crashed on 228th Street SE near 42nd Avenue SE around 10:20 p.m., according to Snohomish Regional Fire and Rescue.
The two people had minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. A dog in the plane went with them.
No vehicles or people on the ground were hit.
According to Federal Aviation Administration records, the plane was registered to a man from Auburn, California, northeast of Sacramento. Records show it was an amateur-built, fixed-wing Zenith CH 701 with a single engine.
The FAA was called to help with the investigation.
Traffic was diverted into the night as the 4200 block of 228th Street SE was closed for the investigation.
