The crashing of a small airplane approximately two miles south of Pisgah has left one man in serious condition.

 And it is one of three accidents that has happened in Harrison County over a roughly 24-hour period, from mid-afternoon June 23 to mid-afternoon June 24.

The plane crashed in a soybean field, according to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office. This happened mid-afternoon on Tuesday, June 23.

The pilot was the only one in the airplane. The identity of the man has not been released.

Those on scene assisting included the Harrison County Sheriff's Office, Logan Fire & Rescue squad, Logan Police Department, Woodbine Police Department and Woodbine Fire & Rescue squad.

No other details were available at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

A gentlemen, who has a Nebraska address, caused two accidents mid-afternoon on June 24.

He was driving westbound on Highway 30. Before the intersection of Highways 30 and 44 between Logan and Woodbine, the man struck a vehicle, which had only one occupant. This person sustained minor injuries, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The gentleman stopped his vehicle, exited it, then got back in it and kept driving westbound on Highway 30.

He continued on and would eventually lose control of his vehicle, cross the center line and his vehicle landed in the ditch right next to the turnoff for the county landfill between Logan and Woodbine. (He was the only one in the vehicle.)

The man, who sustained serious injuries, had to be life flighted to Omaha. His condition is unknown at this time.

Those on scene for the accident were the Sheriff's Office, Iowa State Patrol, Logan Fire & Rescue squad, Logan Police Department, Woodbine Police Department and Woodbine Fire & Rescue squad.

Alcohol may have been a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
