Strathcona RCMP and Strathcona Emergency Services were called to the scene on Township Road 524 and Range Road 212 just before noon, according to a news release.

According to the pilot, he had been experiencing mechanical issues and decided to land on the roadway, which he said was clear of vehicles at the time.

RCMP said the pilot is from Edmonton and was the lone occupant of the plane, which he owns.

The man was not injured and the plane sustained very little damage.

“I was in my shed tacking up my horse, and there was this big crash,” said Brecklyn Clement, who lives in the area.

“I saw a couple people stopped, and the plane was already in the ditch.”

Clement added that the pilot was able to speak with the bystanders who stopped to help.

“He was a little roughed up, just a little out of it a bit. But he seemed happy he was OK.”

No other bystanders or vehicles were involved.

Well, it clearly says in the article:

 The man was not injured and the plane sustained very little damage.  So, I take it from the reporter that the damage is minor.
