Investigation Underway After Plane Crashes into Minnesota Pond
A news release issued by the Lino Lakes Police Department says officers responded to numerous reports of what was described as an aircraft incident. The aircraft went down around 8 p.m.
Emergency responders found what is being described as a lightweight experimental aircraft that had been set down in a large retention pond near a residential area. The pilot, who was the lone sole on board, was located and not injured by the plane crash.
Police say there were no other injuries reported. Authorities also say there were no reports of property damage in the crash area.
The pilot’s name has not been released. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
The crash landing was the second to occur in the northern Twin Cities Metro Saturday. Hours earlier, authorities responded to a plane that had to make an emergency landing on a road in Blaine.
