A plane flipped over onto its roof when it veered off the runway and hit a dirt road Monday at Cranland Airport, the same airport where a small plane crashed Friday killing one man and injuring another, Hanson police said.
The pilot in Monday’s mishap, a 20-year-old man, suffered minor injuries and was taken to South Shore Hospital by a Hanson Fire Department ambulance for treatment, police said in a statement.
He was alone in the Cessna 182 Skylane plane when he apparently overshot the runway around 1 p.m. while landing, ran into a dirt road, and flipped over, according to an initial investigation.
The cause of the crash is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board, police said.
The incident comes only three days after a small plane carrying two brothers crashed in the same airport. They were on a mission to spread their late father’s ashes over their family home. One man died and the other is paralyzed from the waist down.
