Small plane crashes in Bulloch County

A small plane crashed near Mill Creek Park about 6 p.m. Friday. No injuries were reported.


A small airplane crashed Friday near Mill Creek Park, but no injuries were reported, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.
At 5:59 p.m., deputies responded to a 911 call from a pilot who reported that mechanical difficulties had forced the plane he was flying to make an emergency landing.
Bulloch County 911 pinpointed the pilot's position to Georgia Highway 24, just past Mill Creek Park, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release.
Deputies responded and found the pilot and his passenger. Bulloch EMS responded to treat a minor complaint from the passenger, but otherwise, no one was harmed, the release says.
The airplane, a four-passenger single-engine model, was found heavily damaged in a field. It flew out of Statesboro-Bulloch County Airport and was returning there when the mechanical problems began, the sheriff said.
The case has been forwarded to the Federal Aviation Administration for further investigation.
