In Springfield, Missouri, a small plane clipped a cell phone tower and crashed into a vacant lot. Thankfully, all four people in the plane survived. “Our pilot did an incredible job of finding a place to land that thing with no buildings,” passenger Paul Reinert said. “While I got whipped around pretty good, I was able to stand up and walk out of the plane.” However, two passengers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, including the pilot who is recovering from a few broken bones. There was no loss of service to the tower, and public relations manager for Verizon Wireless, Brenda Hill, confirmed that the tower was Verizon’s. There was no apparent damage to the tower, so if there were any issues they weren’t severe enough to disrupt service in the area.
