The pilot of a single-engine Piper Cherokee who crashed in a wooded area in northern Lycoming County Sunday remains in serious condition at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
Vincent J. Mow, of Waukesha, Wis., crashed just off Route 44 near the Black Forest Inn, missing several homes by about 100 yards.
According to online flight tracking information, Mow was destined for a small, privately-owned airport in Kingston, N.Y., when his plane went down.
It took emergency crews about an hour to free Mow from the wreckage. He was transported to Geisinger by a LifeFlight medical helicopter.
Arlene Salac, a spokeswomen for the Federal Aviation Administration, said Wednesday that the accident is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board. She said the NTSB will issue a preliminary report by about Jan. 2.
According to FAA records, Mow has a private pilot's license that was issued in 2009.
