A plane has crashed at the Centralia Municipal Airport.
Centralia Police Chief Brian Atchison says the pilot was the only person in the plane, and he was taken to SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital in Centralia for treatment of injuries.
Atchison says the man's name is not being released. He reports the Centralia Municipal Airport is currently closed pending completion of the investigation.
Atchison says it's too early to speculate on what may have happened. Centralia Police and Fire Officials along with State Police handled the accident scene. The National Transportation and Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have been contacted, but Atchison says it was not immediately clear what type of investigation would be conducted.
Airgo officials at the airport are not releasing any information on the crash.
