ROANOKE — A small plane crashed in southern Denton County Wednesday evening.

Its pilot spent more than an hour wandering around in the woods north of Northwest Regional Airport in Roanoke before he was found by emergency crews.

The pilot of the single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza made his way out of the aircraft, which apparently crashed in a tree. He contacted emergency crews with a cell phone.

They then spent the 75 minutes trying to reach one another.

The pilot, whose name was not available, was said to be shaken up but unhurt.
