LITITZ, Pennsylvania  — A plane crash injured one person Thursday night in Lititz, Lancaster County.

Officials at Lancaster Airport say the pilot of a small plane crashed during takeoff.

The pilot was trying to take off down a taxiway instead of a runway, and hit some protective fencing around a fuel storage area.

“He diverted and caught one of his wings on the safety bollards that were protecting that fuel tank, and which I guess flipped the airplane upside down or at least got it disoriented,” said Airport Director David Eberly.

The pilot went to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The crash is under investigation.







A small plane crashed through the fence at Lancaster Airport on Thursday evening.

The crash happened about 7:45 p.m. It appeared that one man was on the plane.

He was loaded onto an ambulance, which left the scene of the crash at about 8:23 p.m.

The crash happened at the northern end of the airport, about 30 yards east of Venture Jets, which has an entrance off of Millport Road.

The plane was upside down, and a wing appeared to be shorn off.

The registration number on the tail of the plane indicated it was a 1965 Piper four-seater registered to an owner in Carroll County, Maryland.
