Law enforcement and fire crews responded to the scene of a northern Whatcom County plane crash Monday afternoon.

Shortly before 4 p.m., crews were called to the 6800 block of Goodwin Road near Everson for the report of a small airplane crash, according to emergency radio traffic.

A Cessna airplane struck a power pole with its wing while taxiing after it landed, impacting the power lines, according to Allen Kenitzer, a spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration. The aircraft was not in flight at the time, Kenitzer said.
