Small plane crashed near Lexington, no one hurt

January 27, 2019

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A small airplane crashed on a Lexington horse farm, but the people aboard suffered only minor injuries.

The Lexington Fire Department and police responded to Calumet Farm Saturday afternoon, after a small craft went down.

The Herald-Leader reports two people were on board the plane and appeared to have only minor injuries, according to Lexington Police.

The plane was forced to land because of engine failure, police said.

The plane had been approaching Blue Grass Airport to land when the incident occurred at 3:45 p.m., said airport marketing coordinator Tiffany Hart. She did not know where the plane’s flight originated.

The plane is a Beechcraft Bonanza, which apparently seats up to six people.
