Initial information provided by the Limon County Sheriff’s Office indicates the plane clipped a transmission line which resulted in a large power outage in eastern Colorado.

The pilot was reportedly able to walk and talk with responders following the crash landing but Limon police say the man was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Officials said that power restoration will be happening “very soon.”
