DALLAS (AP) - Texas state Sen. Kel Seliger was not injured when he accidentally drove his single-engine plane onto a vehicle service road and ran into a chain-link fence at Dallas Love Field.

Love Field spokesman Jose L. Torres said the 62-year-old Amarillo Republican was alone in the plane when the accident happened near a private aviation company along Lemmon Avenue, northeast of the airport’s commercial airline terminal.

Torres said Seliger was heading back to Amarillo but took the service road instead of a taxiway that leads to a runway. The left wing of the Bonanza A-36 caught the fence and pulled the propeller into the fence.

In April, Seliger was injured and needed ankle and elbow surgery after a motorcycle accident in Austin. He was alone at the time.
