BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A dramatic scene unfolded Tuesday afternoon in a neighborhood in the Foley area when a small, twin engine plane crashed.

The pilot reportedly made it out of the plane and is lucky to be alive. It appears the pilot clipped some oak trees after take-off in his Cessna 421.

It crashed near a mobile home park at Sunset Circle and Hickory Street. Crews responded quickly and worked to extinguish the flames. At least two fire engine crews and two ambulance crews arrived to help. The crash happened just before 2:30 p.m.

This area is just south of the Foley Municipal Airport. There are also a lot of homes, businesses and oak trees in this area.
