1 dies, 2 survive in Wis. plane crash
Owen, Wis. — A plane crash in central Wisconsin has killed one person and injured two others.
Clark County Sheriff Greg Herrick says the victim was a passenger in a Cessna 182 that was trying to make an emergency landing on a road in the town of Hoard about 10:45 a.m. Monday.
News-Herald Media (http://mnhne.ws/1yWuXrz ) reports two other people in the plane suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The sheriff says the pilot reported the wings started to ice up about 8,000 feet in the air, so he started circling while looking for a road to try an emergency landing.
As the plane touched down, Herrick says, the wing clipped tree branches, causing the plane to crash into the ditch.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the plane was traveling from Menominee, Michigan, to Litchfield, Minnesota.
