Taylorsville, Spencer County, Kentucky. The pilot of a small plane attempting to land in a private field early Saturday was injured when he crashed in the 700 block of Elk Creek Road in Taylorsville at about 9:00 a.m. According to the Spencer County Sheriff’s Office, the plane – a fixed wing, single engine plane – clipped power lines and then crashed. Detective Kyle Bennett of the Sheriff’s Office stated: “This pilot was coming in for a gathering of small planes that they do the first Saturday of every month,” and, it appears, “[h]e circled and came in to get a straight drop to the runway where the plane then clipped power lines. It clipped his right wing and hit the windshield and part of the left landing gear. He then came down into this field at about a 45 degree angle.”
Detective Bennett stated that the pilot was attempting to land in a private field. The pilot, Dwayne Hargrove of Louisville, Kentucky, sustained injuries and was taken to University Hospital in Louisville.
