UPLAND (CBSLA) — A small plane crashed in Upland Wednesday, but the pilot survived and was helped from the downed craft.

The crash happened right off the runway at Cable Airport in Upland. It’s not clear if the plane was taking off or landing.

One man was seen being helped from the downed craft, which appeared to have landed in a dry creek beyond the runway. He was able to walk and get on a stretcher on his own.
