Pilot injured in small plane crash

- One person was injured in a small plane crash just east of Lake Hancock late this morning.

Polk County Fire Rescue says it was around 11 a.m. when the twin-engine Cessna crashed in a field.  A Polk County Government helicopter spray pilot saw the plane going down and was able to get the injured pilot to Bartow Municipal Airport, where he was loaded onto an ambulance to the hospital.

The pilot was the only person on board.  The extent of his injuries was not immediately available.

FAA records show the plane is registered to a corporation out of Missouri.
