Pilot unhurt in small plane crash near Pyramid lake

RENO — A pilot escaped injury when the small plane he was flying crashed near Pyramid Lake north of Reno.

Don Pelt, emergency manager for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, says the male pilot was the only person on the plane that went down Friday afternoon on the northwest side of the lake near State Highway 445.

Pelt says the man called 911 after he said he walked away from the crash and seems to be fine. He says the pilot was attempting to land when he clipped a cattle guard.
