MOTT, N.D. (KFGO) – Hettinger County Sheriff’s Office reported a power outage yesterday when a small single-propeller engine plane was forced to make a hard emergency landing in an open field east of Regent. The three occupants of the aircraft were transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
The crash caused downed power lines across the Enchanted Highway, just north of Regent. Traffic was temporarily diverted. Crews have repaired the down lines, and the highway has since reopened.
The office has released no further information until the ongoing investigation is complete.
