PANOLA COUNTY, TX (KSLA) – A plane crashed just after 9 PM Sunday September 19th, near the Panola County line.

A small plane, traveling from Pensacola, Florida to Longview, Texas crashed into a barn just off of FM Road 2517.

We spoke with Desoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle, and he confirmed that the only person on the plane was the pilot, and he somehow escaped the crash with only minor injuries.

Sheriff Arbuckle also told us that it appears the plane ran out of fuel.

We are keeping in close contact with authorities on this crash and we will keep you posted with the latest details here at KSLA.com and on air at KSLA News 12.
