HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Officials in western Kentucky say a father and son were injured when their small plane crash landed on the shoulder of the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkinsville.
Capt. Chris Miller of the Christian County sheriff's department says 58-year-old Mike Creed, the pilot, and 20-year-old Benjamin Creed of Hopkinsville took off in the 1943 Piper airplane shortly before the crash Thursday.
Miller says when the plane began to lose altitude, the pilot decided to return to the local airport but couldn't make it and attempted an emergency landing on the parkway.
The plane crashed on the shoulder shortly before 2 p.m. CDT. Miller said no one was injured on the ground.
Mike Creed is in serious condition at TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Miller says Benjamin Creed was treated at the scene.
