Authorities say man killed in Oklahoma crop duster crash

The Associated Press - June 19, 2018 12:52 pm

ENID, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Texas man was killed when the small airplane he was piloting crashed in northwestern Oklahoma.

The agency says in a news release that 52-year-old Rodney Sherry of Olton, Texas, died in the crash just after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

It says Sherry was the only person on board the crop-dusting aircraft when it crashed into a wheat field just northwest of Enid.

OHP Lt. Kera Philippi says the plane apparently crashed after striking a guideline wire that was attached to an approximately 400-foot-tall  communications tower.

Enid Emergency Management Director Mike Honigsberg said the plane was a single-engine, fixed-wing aircraft.
