ATLANTA (CBS46) — A small plane because stuck in power lines earlier today in Waycross, which is about 4 hours from Atlanta near Savannah.

The pilot was trapped in the cockpit for about two hours before he could be rescued.

At this time, we don't know what caused the plane to go down.

After the pilot was rescued, he was taken to a local hospital for a cut on his head. The Ware County EMA director said the pilot was alert and he knew where he was at.

The EMA director said the pilot was headed to the Waycross Airport, which is about two miles from where the plane went down.

The crash resulted in a power outage in the area but it was restored shortly after they got the pilot out.

The FAA will investigate the incident.
