Plane crashes behind elementary school in Cypress
A pilot escaped with minor injuries on Thursday night after he was forced to set down his plane behind a school in Cypress.
The pilot was trying to land at West Houston Airport about 7 p.m. when he had mechanical problems with his Beechcraft Baron 58, officials said.
At first, the pilot attempted to land in a baseball field near Fry Road and Cypress North Houston.
"As he got closer to the field, he noticed there were kids there," said trooper John Sampa, of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
He was finally forced to set down in a small patch of land behind Warner Elementary School, 10400 Warner Smith Boulevard.
