No one was seriously injured in a wind-related private airplane crash Friday morning.
A private airplane crashed Friday morning while attempting to land at Plant City Airport.
At approximately 9:25 a.m., according to Plant City Police, Talin L. Beach, 18, of Mulberry, attempted to land a Cessna Model 172 when a wind-related event caused him to brake heavily and eventually lose control of the plane. It left the runway to the north and eventually came to rest in a canal.
Plant City Fire Rescue determined Beach, who was the only occupant, was not injured badly enough for medical transport. No airport buildings or assets were damaged in the crash, which was contained within airport property, and damage to the plane itself appeared to be minor.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash and has secured the plane.
