YORKVILLE, Wis. - Authorities say a 79-year-old man was injured after a small plane he was piloting crashed prior to takeoff Tuesday at the Sylvania Airport in Racine County.
The Racine County sheriff's office said the pilot was the sole occupant of the plane, which struck a fuel tanker truck prior to liftoff and spun around before colliding head-on into the vehicle.
The plane was leaking fuel, but there were no flames or smoke, the sheriff's office said.
The pilot was conscious and breathing. He was treated at the scene and taken to Froedtert Hospital via helicopter. His condition is not known.
