A small private plane crashed Monday in rural Fresno County.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the incident before 2:30 p.m. west of Selma on Cedar Avenue.
An ambulance was not requested, but Cal Fire was called out for a fuel leak.
A pilot was the only person on the plane when it lost power at an altitude of 4,000 feet. He was headed to the Selma airport. The plane overturned when it clipped vines as he tried to land the craft, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
Never miss a local story.
The plane was a Vans RV-6, the FAA said.
