LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Authorities say a 75-year-old North Little Rock man was killed when the plane he was piloting crashed in a wooded area in Lonoke County late Monday.
The cause of the accident is still being investigated.
The pilot — who was still conscious when emergency crews arrived at the wooded accident site — told authorities that his single-engine plane lost power and crashed into a tree, where the craft became lodged.
The man was flown to a nearby hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
