Authorities: 2 Hurt in Small Plane Crash in Maryland

Posted:

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A small plane crashed in woods near an airport in Maryland after takeoff Sunday, leaving two men injured, authorities said.

Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Michael Pfaltzgraff said that department received a report shortly before 2 p.m. of a plane down west of Tipton Airport near Fort Meade, in an area between Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

Rescue crews found two men, one 55 and the other 80 years old, trapped in the wreckage, according to Pfaltzgraff. Their names and the extent of their injuries were not immediately disclosed.

Pfaltzgraff said it took the emergency workers about 50 minutes to free the men from the plane.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the aircraft was a Grumman American AA-1, and that it went down a half-mile from the runway after departure.

Bergen added in an email that the FAA is investigating, and that the National Transportation Safety Board will seek to determine the cause.
