Pilot ‘crash lands’ in Davie field

A pilot suffered minor injuries Monday morning when he crash landed his small, single-engine aircraft in a Davie County field.

The pilot was headed to Twin Lakes Airport but because of a mechanical issue, couldn’t make it, and tried landing in an open field off Williams Road near No Creek Road.

The pilot, whose name was not available Monday evening, called 911 to report the crash and his minor injuries, reported Davie EMS Director Brian Byrd. He was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.
