An airplane accident seriously injured two people at Capitol Airport on Gumina Road, on Wednesday, January 4.

According to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, the single-engine plane was about to take off from Capitol Airport when, for unknown reasons, it went off the runway and struck a blue SUV hauling a trailer. The SUV had no occupant.

The impact of the crash injured the pilot, who was identified only as a 41-year-old man from Virginia, and his 37-year-old wife. They were rushed to Froedtert Hospital via Flight for Life. A 6-month-old infant, who was in the back seat with his mother, was not injured but was transported to Children’s Hospital as a precaution.

Investigators were called to the scene to determine the cause of the crash. The preliminary investigation shows that the victims were headed back to Virginia when the tragedy took place.
