Police say a man who survived a small plane crash in New Milford, Connecticut was able to walk away from the scene to get help. She was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries and has not been identified.

The four-seat Cessna C-172, believed to be flown for training, crashed at the end of a runway at Candlelight Farms Airport in New Milford at about 9:45 a.m., the News-Times reported.

No information has been released on the people on the plane, but LifeStar is responding and said the medical transport helicopter will be landing in the area of the airport. The co-pilot was also trapped and was presumed dead. The conditions of those two people were not released by the NTSB officials.

Arrow Aviation is the same company that owns the plane involved in the deadly plane crash in Danbury, July 30.

The instructor died and two passengers were injured.

Preliminary results of that investigation showed that the plane piloted by Stern began to lose altitude shortly after take off. The accident happened just two weeks after the plane had received its annual inspection.

New Milford police, the NTSB and the FAA are investigating. They say the plane is registered as a 1974 fixed wing, single engine CESSNA, with a tail No. N1727V.
