According to Baker Country Sheriff’s Office, an ultralight vehicle crashed in Baker County Saturday. Deputies said the ultralight vehicle was flying East from a hanger behind Mt. Zion Church near State Road 121 when it lost power.
Records show the incident happened near Highway 121 North, just 4 miles north of Macclenny and less than 2 miles away from the Georgia border.
As per the reports, the 53-year-old pilot tried turning the vehicle back to the hanger but started to rapidly lose altitude instead.
Officials said the pilot was seriously injured. He is taken to the nearby hospital. However, his identity is not known.
The FAA said they will not investigate the incident because unregistered ultralight vehicles are not considered aircraft. The Baker Country Sheriff’s Office is doing the investigation.
