Pilot OK; plane, fence damaged

        LIBERTY TWP. — Authorities on Monday were continuing to investigate a crash that damaged a small plane and about 70 feet of fence.

        Pilot Steven D. Pollak, 45, of Maineville, avoided injury. The crash happened Saturday afternoon shortly after he took off from Lebanon-Warren County Airport, bound for Butler County Regional Airport, said Detective Monte Mayer, Butler County sheriff's spokesman.

        Mr. Pollak was attempting to land safely after he noticed engine trouble, but couldn't see the wire fence until he was too close to avoid it, the detective said. The plane crashed into the fence in the 8000 block of Millikin Road and stopped in a field behind the 8100 block of Princeton Road.
