JUNCTION CITY, Ky. (AP) - A Stanford man has walked away unharmed after his plane crashed near Junction City.

Boyle County Emergency Management Director Mike Wilder tells The Advocate-Messenger (https://bit.ly/1Pg2ClD) that 76-year-old James Board showed no sign of injury Sunday evening when he was taken to hospital after his Cessna aircraft crashed just north of Junction City, striking power lines on the way down.

Details surrounding the crash are still uncertain.

Wilder said investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration were expected to be on the scene Monday to determine the cause of the crash.

This is the second place crash in less than a month involving Danville’s Stuart Powell Airfield Airport. On July 21, a North Carolina man walked away uninjured when his 1978 plane crashed in similar circumstance.
