Small plane crash in Shenandoah area

Engine failure causes a small plane to crash in Shenandoah, leaving the pilot injured.

The 1963 Cessna 172 plane made an emergency landing in the Woodforest Bank Stadium parking lot on David Memorial Drive, according to Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Burse.

Houston resident Michael Wade Durr, the pilot, was treated by emergency medical services and released. No other passengers were in the plane.

Durr had flown the Cessna from Weiser Airpark in the Cypress area after 10 a.m. Friday to Cleveland before refueling the plane. As Durr flew the plane back to the airpark, the engine failed and he contacted Hooks Airport personnel.
