WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police in Westminster say a pilot is in critical condition at Shock Trauma in Baltimore after a small plane crash at the Carroll County Regional Airport.
Police say the 64-year-old man from Rockville was the sole occupant of the single-engine aircraft that crashed Friday morning.
Trooper First Class Rick Luzier (loo-ZEER') says the airport is closed while the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration investigate.
He says the crash was reported shortly after 10 a.m. at the north end of the runway.
Luzier says it's not clear whether the plane was taking off or landing.
