Connecticut Post (Sunday) - - News - By Tara O'Neill

NEW MIL­FORD — There were no se­ri­ous in­juries when a hang glider crashed in New Mil­ford on Sat­ur­day.

A New Mil­ford po­lice dis­patcher said the call came in around 2: 30 p. m. and first re­spon­ders rushed to Ridge Road for a re­port of a plane crash. Those that re­sponded found a hang­glider that had crashed into the trees just off the road­way.

The po­lice dis­patcher said the fire depart­ment re­sponded and quickly worked on res­cue op­er­a­tions. Though po­lice did not say how many peo­ple were aboard the hang glid- er, the dis­patcher said there were no se­ri­ous in­juries in­volved.

There is an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion into what caused the hang glider to crash, the po­lice dis­patcher said.

The last time there was a crash of this sort in New Mil­ford, it ended fa­tally.

More than a year ago, on Aug. 11, 2017, a plane crashed in New Mil­ford, in­jur­ing the stu­dent pilot and her father, and killing 57- year- old An­thony Mo­rasco.
