Minor injuries after a small plane crash in Salisbury

SALISBURY – Two people suffered minor injuries when a vintage aircraft crashed in the Salisbury – Lakeville area.

Connecticut State Police said the single-engine plane crashed into a tree in Salisbury at about 5 p.m. Sunday.

The plane’s two occupants were out of the aircraft and on the ground when rescue personnel arrived. They were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Federal aviation authorities say the 1946 Piper J-3 Cub had taken off from the airport in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, about 15 miles away.

State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded to the scene to contain a fuel leak.

No names were released and the cause remains under investigation.

On Friday a plane crashed in Sherman, killing one person and injuring two others. On July 30, a small plane crashed in Danbury. One person died from his injuries.
