Spring Creek, Madison County, Tennessee

Ultralight crashes into tree in Spring Creek

An ultralight airplane crashed into a tree in Spring Creek on Saturday evening, but no injuries were reported.

Lt. Jerry Elston of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said the ultralight hit a gust of wind that knocked it into a tree on Pillow Road in Spring Creek.

The pilot was not injured, Elston said. There was no property damage.

The plane is not the type that must be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration, but Elston said the Federal Aviation Administration would probably be called about the accident as a courtesy.
