Plane Crash

by Christa Lollis

A man was taken to a Houston hospital after his plane crashed in San Jacinto County this afternoon.   DPS troopers said, Jerry Shelton of Chatfield had just taken off from Cleveland when his engine quit. He attempted to land in a field near Collier Road but at a hundred feet his plane spiraled and crashed. He was transported to Herman Hospital and is in fair condition with a broken hip. At this time authorities aren't sure what caused the engine to stop working.
