Small plane crashes near Aurora
At about 10:45 this morning, July 19, a deputy from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a small plane crash near S. Meridian and S. Whiskey Hill roads near Hubbard.
The two occupants of the plane were reported to be out of the plane and walking around.
The plane was traveling from the Lenhardt Airpark in Hubbard headed to the Mulino Airport. The pilot noticed his altitude was too low as he approached some trees but was unable to correct this in time. The wing of the plane struck a tree which caused the plane to go down.
The plane came down in a wooded area without causing serious injury to the passenger or the pilot. There were no structures or other property damage, and no roadways were closed.
The Aurora Fire Department and Woodburn Ambulance Service responded to the scene. The two occupants were transported to an area hospital for what appears to be minor injuries.
The pilot was identified as Robert Teneyck, 81, of Woodburn. The passenger was identified as Rosalie Carman, 70, of Portland.
