NEW CARLISLE, Ohio – Three people have been taken to the hospital after a plane crash in New Carlisle.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol Springfield Post says reports of the crash came in around 7:30 am Sunday morning. They say the crash happened in the area of Studebaker Nursery, along Milton Carlisle Road.
According to Bethel Township Fire Chief Jacob King, a father and his 15-year-old son and another male passenger were taken to the hospital after the crash.
They sustained non-life threatening injuries.
King says the crash happened shortly after the plane took off from the New Carlisle airport.
In a report released by the NTSB, multiple witnesses said they saw the plane take off at a steep angle.
The pilot says he “aggressively” pulled back on the controls at takeoff. Moments later, the plane experienced engine trouble, causing it to crash.
The FAA is investigating the crash.
