BATAVIA, Ohio —  A pilot in Clermont County was hit by his own plane Thursday afternoon.

Several emergency crews were called to a reported plane crash at the Clermont County Airport, located at 2001 Sporty's Drive, near Batavia.

The plane did crash, officials said, but it never actually left the ground.

Investigators with the Ohio State Highway Patrol said a pilot attempted to "hand prop" a plane – or start the aircraft propeller by hand-spinning it.

But troopers on the scene said the pilot forgot to put on the brake, and the plane began to move without the pilot.

The moving plane struck the pilot and injured him. The severity of his injuries are unknown.

Officials said the plane continued to move after hitting the pilot.

The owner of the airport was somehow able to stop the plane by using his SUV, running his vehicle into the tail of the plane. Specifics of how that happened remain unclear.
