NORTHAMPTON, New York – New York State Police Monday identified the pilot in a Sunday small plane crash on Great Sacandaga Lake as a Troy man.

Troopers also indicated that one passenger suffered injuries in the incident characterized as non-life-threatening, while the pilot and a second passenger were not injured.

Troopers identified the pilot as Matthew Clemente, 66, of Troy.

The incident involved a Maule MX-7-160 and happened just before noon Sunday in the area of 328 Houseman Street, Northhampton, police said.

The preliminary investigation determined that the plane was attempting to take off from the area of the Northampton Campground when a gust of wind caught the plane when it was only a few feet off the ground, police said.

The plane then dropped into the shallow water of the lake and flipped over, police said.

Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino previously reported that the person injured was conscious and alert at the scene. That person was then airlifted to the hospital.

Other first responders involved at the scene included State Police and Northampton-based fire and emergency teams.

The Federal Aviation Administration was contacted and is investigating.

NORTHAMPTON — One person was injured in a Great Sacandaga Lake plane crash, according to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities responded to a plane crash near Northampton Beach Public Campground around noon. Three people were seated in the plane, which flipped over as a result of heavy wind hitting a wing. One person was airlifted to an area hospital with minor injuries after officials from the state Department of Environmental Conservation picked up passengers from the wreckage site by boat.

The victim was conscious and alert, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Other first responders involved at the scene included State Police and Northampton-based fire and emergency teams. 

State Police have since taken over the case and haven’t immediately responded to a request for comment.
