HUBBARD, Ore. – An 81-year-old pilot and his 70-year-old passenger walked away from a plane crash with minor injuries Saturday morning after their aircraft went down in a stand of trees near Hubbard.
The pilot, Robert Teneyck of Woodburn, noticed his altitude was too low as the plane was approaching some trees, the deputy said.
One of the plane's wings struck a tree and the plane crashed in the woods near S. Meridian Road and Whiskey Hill Road.
Teneyck and his passenger, Rosalie Carman of Portland, made it out of the plane and were walking around when firefighters and medics arrived at the crash scene, said Clackamas County Sheriff’s Deputy Marcus Mendoza. Teneyck and Carman were taken to the hospital.
The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.
