Two people were injured in a plane crash near Knik Glacier Sunday afternoon, according National Transportation Safety Board chief Clint Johnson.
|That's going to leave a mark.|
The crash took place just before noon about 19 miles east of Palmer, 'where the glacier meets the river,' officials told Channel 2 News.
"There were two occupants," Johnson said. "Both sustained minor injuries in the crash."
The plane has been identified as a single-engine Stinson 108, Johnson said.
|Probably won't buff out, either.|
The pilot of the crashed plane has been identified as 60-year-old Bruce C. Junes of Anchorage, according to a dispatch by Alaska State Troopers Sunday.
Troopers say that the crash was reported at about 12:24 p.m.
"LifeMed transported Junes to the Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage," troopers wrote in the dispatch. "The passenger was not injured in the collision."
|And that's how you get 'em out.|
Note: No disrespect is intended; I'm just happy that no one was killed, for a change.
