HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. - A pilot has survived after his plane crashed near the state line between North and South Carolina.

Henderson County Sheriff’s Capt. Frank Stout says the single-engine Rans S-6 Coyote crashed just across the line in South Carolina about 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Stout says the one man on board called 911. Stout says it took rescuers more than two hours to find the man, who was taken to a hospital in Hendersonville. Stout says the pilot was able to communicate and could walk on his own. The man’s name has not been released.

Federal and local authorities are investigating the crash. The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane left an airport in Nashville, Tenn., and was headed to Greenville, S.C. Downtown Airport when it crashed.
