EL PASO, Texas - An 83-year-old man was injured in a plane crash in far east El Pao Saturday morning, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
At around 9:30 a.m., a DPS spokesman said 83-year-old Edward Bernard was attempting to take off near Santa Fe Trail and Flager Street. Bernard then reportedly lost control of his 1964 Globe Swift, striking a fence.
The agency described Bernard's injuries as "incapacitating."
The Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating.
