NORTHAMPTON —  One person was injured in a Great Sacandaga Lake plane crash, according to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities responded to a plane crash near Northampton Beach Public Campground around noon. Three people were seated in the plane, which flipped over as a result of heavy wind hitting a wing. One person was airlifted to an area hospital with minor injuries after officials from the state Department of Environmental Conservation picked up passengers from the wreckage site by boat.
