Three people escaped serious injury when the plane they were in crashed into a tree in Plymouth.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac said the pilot and two passengers were hurt after the multi-engine Cessna got stuck in a tree near Plymouth Municipal Airport.
Salac said the plane was headed to the airport about 5:15 p.m. Saturday after doing aerial survey work. But something went wrong and the plane landed in a tree in a backyard off Federal Furnace Road.
Salac said rescuers were able to remove the pilot and two passengers, and no one was seriously hurt.
The Cessna is registered to an address in Hampton, Ga.
Salac had no information on what caused the crash.
State police spokesman Lt. David Wilson said the crash was behind 100 Federal Furnace Road. FAA officials and local police and fire were on scene.
