LAMAR COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news report from fox5atlanta.com, four people were injured after a small plane crashed in Lamar County, Georgia. The plane apparently suffered a mechanical failure.*
The crash occurred shortly before 11 a.m. on November 17. An airplane had attempted to take off in Redbone Run off of Community House Road in Lamar County. Redbone Run is a small flying community. The plane somehow crashed into a wooded area shortly after takeoff.
Upon arrival at the scene, Lamar County Sheriff’s deputies learned from the pilot that the plane had suffered some kind of mechanical failure, veered left, then crash landed in the woods. The pilot and three passengers were still in the plane when emergency crews arrived, and all four were transported to Macon Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
