Two injured in plane crash on Camano Island

Two people were injured when a Cessna 182 crashed at a small private airfield on Camano Island around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.

According to Island County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ed Wallace, witnesses reported that the pilot was possibly practicing “touch and go’s,” a landing maneuver, when the accident occurred.

The two occupants of the single-engine plane were injured, he said. One was flown to Harborview Medical Center with head and ankle injuries. The other was taken by ambulance to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett for reported chest pain.

More information about the occupants of the plane was not immediately available on Sunday, but Wallace said the plane was registered to a man out of Twisp.

Wallace said the cause of the crash was not known and that the Federal Aviation Administration would be investigating.
