MARIETTA – A second plane crash in just a matter of weeks happened in Love County Sunday night at the airstrip near McGehee's Catfish Restaurant in Marietta, despite the fact that the runway was closed.
The crash occurred around six o'clock Sunday night. A small plane was being flown by Dennis Wilson of Plano. The runway had recently been plowed, making the soil loose and soft. The nose gear dug into the soil, causing the plane to flip.
The pilot said he didn't know the runway was closed.
Wilson escaped without injuries, and his three passengers were also treated and released.
