• Pilot hurt in small plane crash in Brassfield

    BRASSFIELD, N.C. (AP)ong> - (AP) A pilot has been injured after his small plane crashed near a home in Granville County.

    Investigators told local media that the pilot was taken to the hospital with minor injuries late Thursday.

    Authorities say the plane was traveling from Kentucky when it went down shortly before midnight next to a Brassfield home.

    Officials say the pilot contacted officials at Raleigh-Durham International Airport and said he was having trouble. Airport officials contacted Wake County authorities after they lost contact with the plane, which was found a short time later by Highway Patrol troopers.

    Investigators said people inside the home near the crash site didn't hear anything when the blue and white Cessna landed in trees just feet from the front door. Federal authorities are investigating the crash.
