BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A small plane crashed in Prince George’s County Thursday evening, according to officials.
The plane landed in a wooded area near Church Road and Fairview Vista Road in Bowie around 6:20 p.m.
Maryland State Police say 72-year-old Michael Paul Pillsbury was flying to Freeway Airport in Bowie from Ocean City when he hit a tree he couldn’t see because there was no lighting.
Pillsbury was found in his plane upside down in the trees.
He was taken to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
