PLYMOUTH — Three people escaped serious injuries yesterday when a small airplane crashed into the woods near a Plymouth neighborhood, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.
The twin-engine Cessna 401, built in 1968, crashed into a heavily wooded area at 5:15 p.m. while trying to land at Plymouth Municipal Airport, FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac said.
The crash occurred in the vicinity of 59 Billington Sea Road.
The three people aboard the plane were treated for minor injuries, Salac said.
The plane is registered to Christopher Cox of Georgia, but Salac did not confirm the identities of anyone on the plane. The trio were doing aerial survey work at the time of the crash, she said.
FAA inspectors were at the scene yesterday, and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, Salac said.
