No Injuries After Small Plane Crash Near Lowville

Posted: Updated:

A small plane crashed just outside Lowville Sunday afternoon.

Lewis County Sheriff Mike Carpinelli said no one was hurt when the plane went down at the corner of Willow Grove and Number Three roads.

Carpinelli said the two adults and child who were on board were taken to Lewis County General Hospital to get checked out. 

The pilot had pulled an emergency parachute and called in a distress signal.

The wind caught the parachute and flipped the plane over after the passengers left the scene .

"It is leaking fuel as this time," Carpinelli said Sunday evening. "We have it stabilized for now and that's why we're not letting anyone go out towards that area."

The cause of the crash isn't known. The Federal Aviation Administration will be there Monday to clear the site.
