At 10:48 a.m. on Saturday, July 19, 2014, a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputy responded to a report of a small plane crash near S. Meridian Rd. and S. Whiskey Hill Rd. near Hubbard, OR. The two occupants of the plane were reported to be out of the plane and walking around.
The plane had been traveling from the Lenhardt Airpark in Hubbard, OR to the Mulino Airport in Mulino, OR. The pilot reportedly noticed his altitude was too low as he approached some trees, but was unable to correct this in time. The wing of the plane struck a tree, which caused the plane to go down.
The plane came down in a wooded area without causing serious injury to the passenger or the pilot. There were no structures or other property damage. No roadways were closed due to this crash.
The Aurora Fire Department and Woodburn Ambulance responded to the scene. The two occupants were transported to an area hospital for what appears at this writing to be minor injuries.
The pilot was identified as Robert Teneyck, 81, of Woodburn, OR. The passenger was identified as Rosalie Carman, 70, of Portland, OR.
It's unknown at this writing if the passenger or the pilot are willing to speak with the media regarding this crash.
The FAA is aware of the crash, and will be investigating.
