MD State Police Investigate Airplane Collision In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Maryland State Police say they are investigating an airplane collision at the Salisbury-Ocean City-Wicomico Regional Airport.

According to reports, on September 21st at approximately 2:21 PM, troopers from the Salisbury Barrack and deputies of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office responded to the Salisbury-Ocean City-Wicomico Regional Airport for a report of an airplane collision. Troopers say Kenneth Lennox, 76, of Fruitland, Maryland, was operating a Zodiac HDS Little Sport, single engine, two occupant airplane, and when he landed the aircraft on the designated runway, a strong wind guided the small aircraft off the runway causing a collision with a stationary visual range box. Lennox reportedly sustained minor injuries but refused to be transported to receive medical treatment. Troopers say the aircraft sustained major damage and was towed from the scene, and damage to the visual range box at the airport was an estimated $10,000. Proper authorities were allegedly notified for a continued investigation.
