MONROE, LA (KSLA) -

The pilot of a plane that crashed in a McDonald's parking lot Tuesday in Monroe, LA is now listed in fair condition after he was airlifted to University Health in Shreveport for his injuries.

It happened just before Noon on Desiard Street. The McDonald's restaurant is across the street from the Monroe Regional Airport.

KNOE TV reports that a v-tail single engine bonanza aircraft with one person on board crash landed into a parking lot at that location. The pilot and lone occupant, Ray Martin, was removed and airlifted for medical treatment. NTSB has been notified and will investigate the case of the crash.

Martin is from Monroe.  He's a Monroe-based pilot who works for Brown's Feed and Chemical.  That company is based out of Carmi, Illinois. Carmi is a small town in White County, which is about 120 miles due east of St. Louis, Missouri.

Witnesses at the scene say the plane clipped trees before the crash.
