An unidentified man appears to have escaped serious injuries after a single-engine Cessna he was piloting crashed near a cemetery east of Wagoner.

Sgt. Jeff Halfacre, a spokesman for the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, said dispatchers received a call at 6:59 p.m. Thursday from a motorist who spotted the airplane about a half-mile west of 300 Road along Oklahoma 51. The pilot, he said, was transported to a "local area hospital," where he is believed to have been treated for a head laceration.

"I am not sure about what actually caused it, but it appeared that he probably tried to avoid the highway because of traffic," Halfacre said, noting the pilot's condition reportedly was stable. "It appears to be a minor plane crash -- I don't think his injuries would be considered critical, but he was transported out of precaution and checked out thoroughly."

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers reportedly contacted the Federal Aviation Administration, which Halfacre said was "not going to respond out here." He said the crash site was taped off, and owners of the airplane planned to retrieve it Friday morning.

"Our dispatchers have been notified," Halfacre said. "If they are contacted, they will let the passersby know to disregard it."
