LAKEWAY, Texas – A small plane reportedly lost power before it crashed onto a golf course in Lakeway on Sunday morning, according to Austin-Travis County officials.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. Sunday in the 500 block of Flamingo Blvd. Lakeway is just under two hours away from San Antonio and is near the Austin area.

Lakeway police said the single-engine plane was heading to Tennessee from another location when it lost power near the Lakeway Airpark.

The pilot glided the plane onto the driving range of the Live Oak Golf Course safely and avoided homes in the area. The aircraft was then able to make its way to a Lakeway MUD life station.

EMS officials said the sole occupant of the plane was able to escape uninjured.

The investigation into what led to the crash continues.
