Pilot suffers ‘significant injuries’ after banner plane crashes at North Perry Airport

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A banner plane crashed at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines Thursday, the second crash of a banner plane in Broward County in less than two weeks, both involving the same company and same plane type.

The pilot reportedly survived. Images from Sky 10 show the plane broken apart in a grassy area.

Firefighters later pulled the pilot from the plane and loaded him into an ambulance. The pilot was alert as he was being transported.

His condition “was stable but (he) sustained significant injuries,” Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue Division Chief Scott Gunn said in an email relayed by the city’s police department.

The plane, a Piper PA-25-260, is registered to Aerial Banners Inc. according to Federal Aviation Administration records. The company’s 800 number was on the plane’s fuselage.

A witness said just before the crash, the plane dove to pick up a banner and, just as it was going up into the air, appeared to have stalled and came crashing down in the grass.

Firefighters pull a pilot from a crashed banner plane at North Perry Airport Thursday.

A banner plane pilot, also from Aerial Banners, was killed after crashing on North Park Road in Hollywood on May 17. That plane had also taken off from North Perry Airport.

That plane was also a single-engine Piper PA-25-235.

Man in custody after shooting and wounding Romeoville police officer

ROMEOVILLE, Ill. — A suspect was taken into custody after a Romeoville police officer was shot Thursday morning, police said.

Officers located a vehicle that had been reported stolen and approached a suspect while surveilling the vehicle, police said.

The suspect fled on foot and exchanged gunfire with officers near the intersection of Sierra Trail and Summerfield Drive at 12:13 a.m., police said.

The officer was wounded in the shoulder and transported to Loyola University Medical Center, police said.

Romeoville Police Chief Ken Kroll said the suspect was taken into custody at about 5:45 a.m. less than a mile away from the shooting after an hours-long manhunt.

Chief Kroll said the suspect, 29-year-old Samer Hernandez, was out on parole and has a criminal history.

Police have asked residents in the area of Sierra Trail and Summerfield Drive to shelter in place. The shelter-in place order has been lifted.

“One of our Romeoville police officers was hit,” Chief Kroll said. “He was taken to the Bolingbrook Hospital and he has since been taken from Bolingbrook Hospital to the Loyola University Medical Center. His condition, the information that I am getting back on telephone, is that we’re very positive right now.”

Chief Kroll said the officer has been with the department for five or six years.

Police are also asking residents if you have doorbell or camera footage that may be useful to give them a call.

This has been a very difficult year for first responders. The Chicago area has been through a very painful time.

From March to May, four first responders have been laid to rest.

Last week, Chicago Police Officer Areanah Preston’s funeral was held and in April , two Chicago firefighters died in the line of duty in separate fires within a span of just two days.

The Chicago Police Department also continues to mourn the loss of Officer Andres Vasquez-Lasso who was shot and killed on duty.
