Athol man crashes plane after attempted landing

HAYDEN, Idaho (AP) — An Athol, Idaho man was transported to Kootenai Health with non-life threatening injuries following a plane crash on Sunday night.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports Kootenai County Sheriff’s Deputies and Northern Lakes Fire Department personnel responded to East Lancaster Road near English Point Road in Hayden for a report of a plane that crash landed.

The pilot, Craig Craviotto, 38, of Athol, walked to a nearby residence after attempting to land the Cessna 182D on Lancaster Road. Craviotto told deputies he ran out of fuel and could not safely make it to the Coeur d’Alene Airport, which was his target destination and initial starting point.

The KCSO report will be forwarded to the FAA and NTSB for further investigation. It does not appear that alcohol was a factor.
