Troopers said the pilot was able to walk away.

The plane is just about 30 feet away from Highway 51. Troopers said the single-engine plane dove nose first into the ground. 

They said they think the back of the plane may have collided with one of the trees behind it on its way down.

This all happened Thursday evening around 7 p.m. and the pilot was the only one in the plane. Thankfully he is ok. 

He was sent to the hospital to get treatment for a minor cut to his head. It's still unclear where his plane was going to or coming from.

"There's a local airport just about two miles north of us so he could have been in the area doing airport touchdowns or something like that," said Jeff Halfcare with the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office. 

The owner of the plane is expected to come by and pick it up sometime Friday.  

The FAA has chosen not to investigate this crash.
