A pilot walked away from the crash landing of a small plane this morning in Goodyear.

The single-engine prop plane out of Phoenix Goodyear Airport made what authorities described as a “hard crash landing” at 7:30 a.m. about 200 feet south of MC85 between Sarival Avenue and Cotton Lane.

The pilot, who was the only occupant of the plane, walked away from the crash and refused medical treatment, according to Tom Cole, deputy chief of the Goodyear Fire Department.

Cole said there was no fire at the crash site, but the fire department handled a small fuel leak.

He said Arizona Public Service Co. was also on the scene since the plane may have clipped power lines east of the landing site.
