(CLINTON COUNTY, Mo.) A plane crash in Clinton County Friday night sent one person to the hospital.

The Clinton County Sheriff's Office says they received a call of a single plane crash on South C Highway and Southeast Piper Road around 6 p.m.


In a Facebook post, the department said deputies and first responders discovered a 2014 Experimental RV-12 plane on its top with one occupant inside.

The occupant was taken to an area hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.
