RENO COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) — A small plane crashed in Reno County, just southwest of Hutchinson at South Partridge Road and West Morgan Avenue Thursday.
Reno County dispatch received a call reporting the crash around 4:45 p.m.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Scott Bontrager, 43, of Hutchinson, was flying an ultralight aircraft and, due to the sunlight, he did not see some power lines and hit the lines while attempting to land on Morgan Ave.
KSN was told Bontrager refused treatment at the scene, but a KHP report says he complained of some pain and went to the hospital in Hutchinson to be checked.
KSN will provide more information as it becomes available.
