Pilot injured in small plane crash in West Jordan

Local News
WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – A pilot walked away with minor injuries from a small plane crash in West Jordan Thursday afternoon. 
 
The plane went down in an industrial park in the area of 8600 South 4000 West around 2 p.m. 
 
West Jordan fire officials say a twin-engine plane took off from South Valley Regional Airport and was headed southbound when it struck a power pole on Farm Road and crashed into a nearby field. The plane skidded across the field, sparked a grass fire and hit a fence.
 

 
The pilot was the plane’s only occupant. Fire officials say he got himself out of the plane before emergency crews arrived. He suffered some facial injuries and burns and was taken to the hospital. 
 
Some businesses along Farm Road were impacted by power outages. City officials said the power would be out until around 11 p.m.  Some Jordan School District busses were rerouted due to response to the crash.
