A small plane, described as possibly an ultralight aircraft with a bubble cockpit, crashed into brush near an Ocean Shores residence Friday morning, and the pilot apparently survived without major injury.

A news release from Ocean Shores Police Chief Mike Styner said police were dispatched at 11:40 a.m. to a report of an aircraft accident in the southwest corner of town.

“When officers arrived on scene they found a plane in the brush near a residence. Officers assessed the scene and contacted the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) who put officers in touch with personnel from the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) who will be responsible for investigating the incident along with the FAA,” the news release said.

The crash was in bushes behind a residence on Sanders Court SW.

Fire Chief Tom Lique said there was no fire caused by the crash, and the Fire Department did not transport anyone to the h0spital.
