WALWORTH, Wis. (AP) -- The pilot of an ultralight plane has died after his aircraft crashed in a cornfield in southeastern Wisconsin.
Authorities in Walworth County say 61-year-old John C. Evans of Darien was the pilot and lone occupant.
Deputies say the crash happened Wednesday about 8:30 a.m. Shortly after takeoff the ultralight banked right and crashed into a cornfield next to the grass runway.
The pilot was conscious when deputies arrived. He lost consciousness in an ambulance and was pronounced dead at a hospital.
An autopsy will be conducted later this week to determine the cause of death.
An ultralight is a one- or two-person aircraft that can be flown for short distances at low altitudes.
