Two injured in plane crash at Lindsay airport

Peterborough, ON, Canada / (CHEXTV)

Two people were injured after a small plane crashed at the Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport in Lindsay on Tuesday morning.

The crashed happened at the end of the runway just before 9 a.m.

Kawartha Lakes Police say a pilot and passenger were taken to Ross Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Loomex Group CEO Trent Gervais says the plane had some mechanical issues and was attempting to make an emergency landing.

The Transportation Safety Board was contacted to help with the investigation.


Police say the aircraft had left the runway and had reached a height of 1,000 feet when the plane began to lose power.

The pilot attempted to turn the aircraft 180 degrees to return to the runway, but was unable to do so before making ground fall. The aircraft struck a fence, shearing off a portion of the landing gear and came to rest in a ditch off of the runway. The reason for the power loss is still under investigation.
