Missing person report leads police to plane crash at airport in BC

BY , Feb 10, 2020 9:41 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A man in his 60s was rushed to hospital with serious injuries this morning after RCMP in Merritt located a plane crashed on the tarmac at the city's airport.

The unnamed man had to be cut out of the wreckage of the single seater plane and police say they don't know how long he was there before he was found.

A statement from R-C-M-P says an officer checked the airport while investigating a report about a missing man, and the crash was spotted just after midnight.

Police say Transport Canada is investigating while Mounties support that probe and want to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash.
