Hanna RCMP attended to the local airport Tuesday after a light aircraft crashed in what police have called a “non-criminal” incident.

According to Hanna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jon Cormier, “Hanna RCMP worked with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada and the Department of National Defence to investigate a plane crash.

“On July 30 at approximately 1:27 a.m., the RCMP responded, with Hanna EMS and Hanna Fire Department, to a report that a small airplane crashed at the Hanna Airport. The male pilot of the plane was transported to the local hospital with non life threatening injuries and was later released.
