The Kern County Fire Department is reporting that a plane crashed just south of Delano Saturday morning.

The call came in just before 11 AM this morning, reporting that a single engine aircraft had gone down just south of Delano Airport.

Local authorities say that the plane landed in an orchard and that only the pilot was onboard; they were conscious when authorities arrived and were transported to the hospital with moderate injuries.

This is the third plane crash in Kern County in the last 24 hours; yesterday, one plane crash landed in Mojave and another flipped on a runway in Cal City.
