A man was airlifted to a hospital in Bismarck after a plane crash in Logan County Friday afternoon.

The age of the man flying the plane is not being released yet, and his condition is unknown at this time.

The Logan County Emergency Manager Daniel Schwartz says a crop duster flown by an employee of Mattern Spray Service crashed when the right wing struck a power line 10 miles southwest of Napoleon.

Schwartz says if the plane wouldn’t have stopped it could have entered a slough. He says the plane veered away from potentially hitting a house.

The North Dakota Department of Health is investigating the crash because it released jet fuel into the environment.
