A single-engine airplane made an emergency landing in Rexburg around noon on Sunday after it experienced engine failure.

The engine failure caused the plane to land on Pioneer Road where a wing hit a light pole, said Rexburg Assistant Police Chief Gary Hagen.

“(The plane) came to rest by the canal on Main Street. There were no injuries,” he said.

The police department hasn’t released the name of the pilot or where he was from. That information will be made available via the National Transportation Safety Board.

This is the second plane crash the Upper Valley has experienced in four days. On Wednesday a similar airplane crashed in Newdale. All the passengers in that crash survived and were taken to area hospitals.

REXBURG — A small plane made an emergency landing near the Rexburg Madison County Airport around noon Sunday.

The plane landed at the intersection of Pioneer Road and Lodgepole Street – less than a mile from the airport. Witnesses say the pilot of the single-engine aircraft appeared to be fine and was speaking with emergency responders.

“The pilot had engine failure and was trying to land on Pioneer Road,” Rexburg Assistant Police Chief Gary Hagen tells “He had oncoming traffic so banked it, hit a wing on one of the light poles and came to a stop before the canal on Main Street. The pilot is fine and nobody else was injured.”

Rexburg Police, Madison County Sheriff deputies and the Madison Fire Department responded to the scene. The plane was towed away from the area around 12:50 p.m.
