LOCK HAVEN -- Emergency officials confirm that a plane has crashed in Clinton County.

Crews were called out Friday afternoon when a plane was reported down on Main Street in Lock Haven.

First responders said they believe the pilot lost power to the J-2 Piper Cub which caused it to crash.

George Crug was identified as the pilot of the downed aircraft. He is taking part in the Sentimental Journey which is an aviation event celebrating Piper aircraft that takes place annually in Lock Haven.

Several people who spoke with the pilot told Newswatch 16 that the small plane went down behind a residential area just after the pilot took off.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to do further investigation into the crash.
