“It’s in the top of a tree. I don’t know how he got out of it,” Oglethorpe County Sheriff Mike Smith said.
The pilot, whose name was unavailable, was unharmed in the crash, Smith said.
The crash occurred off Watson Mill Road in an area several miles west of Watson Mill State Park.
The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and an investigator is at the scene.
No word yet on why the plane went down
