Glider crash injures two in Unadilla Township

Two people were seriously injured in a glider crash Wednesday in Unadilla Township.

Unadilla Township Police report that just before 3 p.m. first responders were dispatched to a field on Unadilla Road north of Doyle Road where a glider had crash landed.  A witness reported that the glider was flying low over the trees and called 911 after they saw a puff of dust and knew it had crashed in the field. 

The pilot and passenger sustained serious injuries, although not believed to be life threatening, and were transported by ambulance to U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor. 

Survival Flight was placed on standby but was not needed.  It appears the pilot was attempting to make an emergency landing but the cause of the crash remains under investigation. 

Emergency personnel responded from the Unadilla Township Police Department, Unadilla Township Fire Department, Putnam Township Fire Department, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Livingston County Ambulance, Stockbridge Ambulance, and the Federal Aviation Administration.
