Small Plane Crashes in Berks County Cornfield

A small plane crashed into a cornfield in Washington Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, on September 21.

The plane ended up in an upside down position near 1600 block of Route 100. According to a witness Tyler Moyer, “We heard the engine stall, and then it started back up… The farmer was still picking the corn. The farmer didn’t even notice it, and the dust was flying everywhere from the tractors and stuff,”

The pilot, who was the only one aboard, was injured and was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The FAA and the NTSB are investigating the cause of crash.
