This past weekend, a crop duster crashed over Lee and Ogle counties in Illinois knocking down a cell tower. The plane crashed in a cornfield about 3 miles northeast of Shannon. Thankfully, the pilot had no life-threatening injuries and was able to remove himself from the plane before the engine compartment caught fire.
However, the cell tower and a smaller tower didn’t fare so well and they both collapsed following the crash. The crash is being investigated by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board.
