A pilot of a crop duster was injured when his plane clipped some power lines near County Road 600 South and U.S. 231. The Cessna plane crashed into a field closer to County Road 500 South.

The unidentified pilot was airlifted to an undisclosed Indianapolis hospital.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched at 6:27 p.m. Sunday for the crash. The downed plane closed U.S. 231 because of power lines that were down.

 “Deputies assisted medical personnel with getting the pilot to the roadway, where he was transported by Crawfordsville Medics to Southmont High School,” Major Ryan Needham with the Sheriff’ Office said. “From there, he was flown to an Indianapolis hospital by LifeLine Helicopter.
