No Injuries After Airplane Crash in Warsaw

Strong crosswinds are being blamed for a small airplane in Warsaw on Sunday.

The aircraft was about to land at the Warsaw Airport when the wind caused the plane to tip and it’s wing hit the ground.

The aircraft then bounced, crossed the runway and crashed into the fuel tank barrier, and fence, then slid under a fuel tank.

Despite the spectacular crash, there was no fire and no injuries.

The 63-year-old pilot and his 42-year-old son were enroute from their hometown in Ohio to Grand Rapids and were landing in Warsaw to re-fuel.

The Indiana State Police and FAA are continuing their investigation.
