WICHITA COUNTY, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Newschannel 6 has learned the 65-year-old man who was injured after a plane he was piloting crashed in Wichita County has been discharged from the hospital.

Texas DPS officials said the plane crashed around 9:00 p.m. on Sunday night at the south end of the Wichita Valley Airport in Iowa Park.

Officials said the pilot was attempting to land when the plane slid into an embankment close to the FM 369 and Old Iowa Park Road intersection.

The pilot did not get out of the plane until around 10:30 a.m. Monday morning when he walked to a nearby house and called for help.

Once first responders arrived the pilot was taken to United Regional where he was discharged later this week.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
