1 injured in small plane crash in Rankin County

BRANDON, Miss. —  

A small plane crashed in a Rankin County neighborhood, moderately injuring the pilot, but a passenger escaped unharmed.

Sheriff Bryan Bailey tells The Clarion-Ledger the pilot sustained bruises, cuts, and broken bones when the red and yellow experimental biplane crashed just before 5 p.m. Sunday in the woods just off the Woodbridge subdivision. No residents on the ground were injured.

The sheriff says it took between 30 and 45 minutes to get to the plane and get the passengers out of the woods, but residents of the subdivision helped with SUVs and all-terrain vehicles.

Bailey says the plane had taken off from the private airstrip at the subdivision.

The names of the two in the plane have not been released.
