A Circuit Judge sustained minor injuries in a plane crash in Todd County Tuesday afternoon, with his passenger going unhurt.
Todd County Emergency Management Director Tim Pulley says Judge Tyler Gill of Elkton, who presides in Todd and Logan counties, was taking off in a small plane from the grass airstrip at the Todd County Airport when problems ensued and the plane went down in a field next to Davis Mill Road.
Judge Gill was taken by ambulance to Gateway Medical Center for treatment of neck and back pain, according to Pulley. A passenger, Jerry Hudnell of Russellville, did not have injuries severe enough to require a trip to the hospital.
The FAA was en route to Elkton to investigate and Kentucky State Police was staying overnight to guard the scene.
