HOUSTON — A pilot walked away from a crash after he says he misjudged how tall grass was while he was landing in Brazoria County on Monday.

The plane – a single-engine fixed wing aircraft -- landed in wildlife refuge field off FM 2004 and Chocolate Bayou. A photo from the Texas Department of Public Safety showed the aircraft upside down.

The pilot was the only person onboard.

DPS officials say they’re waiting on a heavy-duty wrecker to pull the plane out so they can investigate if mechanical failure had anything to do with the accident.
