Emergency crews responded to a Berkley airport Tuesday morning after a small plane left the runway and crashed into a wooded area.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), an amateur-built aircraft flown by town resident Murray Randall crashed at about 10:45 a.m. The agency said it appears as though he lost control while landing on a grass strip at Myricks Airport.

Randall was transported to Charlton Memorial Hospital for treatment, but his condition is not yet known.

The pilot was involved in another crash at the same airport more than a decade ago. The FAA said a Piper PA-18-150 being flown by Randall struck trees and power lines while landing back on April 19, 2004.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
