SHERIDAN TWP. — Police say alcohol might have played a factor in a plane crash on Friday in Newaygo County’s Sheridan Township.
Michigan State Police troopers from the Newaygo Post investigated the crash, which took place around 3 p.m. near the Fremont Municipal Airport. The pilot, a 67-year-old Fremont man, told police he was practicing landing and take-off maneuvers when he lost control of the 1941 Boeing fixed wing, single-engine plane and crashed east of Landing Lane.
The man sustained minor injuries, but refused medical treatment at the scene. His passenger, a 46-year-old Fremont man, did not report any injuries as a result of the crash.
The Federal Aviation Administration was notified and will investigate the incident. Troopers were assisted at the scene by Fremont Police Department, Fremont Fire Department, Fremont First Responders, Newaygo County Posse and Life Emergency Medical Services.
Anyone who might have witnessed the crash who can share information with police should call (231) 652-1161.
