Small Plane Crashes In Former Port Allegany Woman's Yard In North Carolina

Small Plane Crashes In Former Port Allegany Woman's Yard In North Carolina

GRANVILLE COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A pilot of a small plane is in the hospital after crashing in the front yard of a home in a Granville County neighborhood.

According to FlightAware, the pilot left Bowman Field in Louisville, Kentucky at 6:13 p.m. Thursday and was headed to Elizabeth City Regional Airport in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, but never made it.

Officials at Raleigh-Durham International Airport were notified around 11:05 p.m. about a plane having trouble, but lost connection with the aircraft.

Authorities in Granville and Wake counties began searching for the plane, and said they had a hard time finding it because the crash made hardly any noise.

The plane, a Cessna 150, had apparently clipped the top of a tree and landed in the brush of a family's front yard on Krogen Court near Bruce Garner and Lawrence roads in Creedmoor - close to the Granville/Wake County line.

The family, who moved into the home three weeks ago from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sleeping at the time and said they did not hear the crash.

"I don't think the reality of it set in until we were leaving the scene and driving to the hotel. It could have been catastrophic," said homeowner Ashley Simar Bartlett.

Neighbors said they did hear a noise, but could not see the wreckage because of trees.

Authorities finally located the crash site around 12:30 a.m. Friday. Read more with photos......
