No one was severely injured when a small plane crashed in a Longs field Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The single-engine Taylorcraft went down just before 11 a.m. about three-quarters of a mile from the intersection of S.C. 9 and S.C. 905.
The pilot was the plane's only occupant and he was not seriously injured, said Thomas Loeper, an assistant chief with Horry County Fire Rescue.
“[The plane] had landed in the field and ran into the woods here,” Loeper said, adding that the plane may have run out of fuel.
Loeper said airport officials have been notified of the crash.
The pilot declined to comment.
Megan Dube, who lives a few blocks away from the crash site, said she'd heard a small plane flying around before the crash.
"I heard something flying over the house, and when I was in Food Lion I heard it fly over," Dube said. "And then there it is, in the woods."
