HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. - Officials in western Kentucky said a father and son were injured when their small plane crash landed on the shoulder of the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkinsville.

Officials with the Christian County Sheriff’s Office said the crash occurred just before 2 p.m.

The pilot, 58-year-old Mike Creed, and his 20-year-old son, Benjamin Creed, experienced trouble in the 1943 Piper J3 Cub light aircraft shortly after taking off from the Hopkinsville Airport.

After losing altitude, Mike Creed attempted to make his way back to the airport but had to make an emergency landing. The plane crashed on the right side of the roadway.

The elder Creed was transported by AirEvac to TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, where he was said to be in serious condition. Benjamin Creed was treated at the scene and later released.

No one was injured on the ground.
