The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash of a single engine plane in a field behind the Holly Lake Car Care car wash in Wood County on Thursday.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said two people — a pilot and a passenger — were injured when an Ercoupe 415-C that is registered to Willie Herman Vawter, 88, of Hawkins went down near the 2400 block of FM 2869.
The pilot reportedly was on final approach to the Holly Lake Ranch Airport, according to Holly Lake Ranch Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Bollinger. Emergency personnel responded to the crash of the small, blue airplane at 8:55 a.m.
First responders used the Jaws of Life to remove the occupants before they were taken to a local hospital by ambulance. The extent of injuries of the pair was unknown.
Officials from the FAA arrived at the crash site about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and took over the investigation.
DPS said no structures were damaged.
