The Kansas Highway Patrol says a pilot was injured when his small plane crashed in central Kansas.
Trooper Ben Gardner says the plane crashed Tuesday afternoon northeast of Roxbury in McPherson County.
The pilot was taken to a Salina hospital but the patrol says is injuries were not considered life threatening.
The pilot said he was trying to take off from a blacktop road when the plane’s left wing hit a street sign and came back down.
Gardner said in some circumstances taking off from a street is legal and there was no indication the pilot broke the law.
