Two men are being treated in South Austin hospital after their single-engine experimental fixed wing aircraft crashed into a utility pole in Horseshoe Bay, police said Friday, Feb. 15.

At about 4:04 p.m. Friday, the Horseshoe Bay Fire Department and Horseshoe Bay Police Department were notified of a plane crash in the 6800 block of Ranch-to-Market Road 2147, Horseshoe Bay Police Chief Rocky Wardlow said.

Upon arrival, police and fire personnel found a Van's RV-8 homebuilt plane had crashed into a utility pole on the south side of the highway. The aircraft was occupied by two men — a pilot later identified as Charles Scott, 75, of Lakeway, and a passenger later identified as Stanley Graham, 73, of Austin, Wardlow said.
