Place crash results in minor injuries

Monday, August 23, 2004

A private plane crashed in Parke County, resulting in non-life-threatening injuries to the pilot and passenger.

Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday a yellow, 2004 Piper Cub airplane crashed while trying to land on a private strip owned by the pilot near Marshall, Ind. about 6 miles north of Rockville.

The airplane apparently descended too quickly, did a nose-dive on the runway before traveling 70 feet where it stopped in a cornfield.

Pilot Martin K. Fall, 59 and his wife, Mary J. Fall, 59, both of Indianapolis, were transported to West Central Community Hospital for treatment.

The incident is being investigated by State Trooper Chris Carter of the Indiana State Police, Terre Haute.
