Plane Crash Sends One to Hospital

A pilot narrowly escapes serious injury today when his plane flipped over during take-off.

WESTFIELD, Ind.—A man narrowly escaped serious injury today when his plane flipped over during take-off. The crash happened a little after noon at the Wheeler Airport located at 18036 Dartown Road in Westfield. The plane was racing down the runway when a gust of wind apparently made it difficult to handle. The man tried to ground the plane, but it suddenly flipped over.

Fellow pilots at the airport went into action and got the downed pilot out to safety. Paramedics arrived shortly after and transported the patient to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. Firefighters would remain on the scene until the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) arrived and began their investigation around 4 this afternoon.
