Federal authorities are involved in the investigation of an apparent plane crash over the weekend. At 6:15 p.m. Sunday, Fremont Count Sheriff's deputy Donovan Detimore was on routine patrol on Klocke Road in the Hidden Valley north of Riverton area when he spotted an overturned aircraft near a private runway in the area. Lee said Detimore reached the aircraft and learned that the incident had occurred earlier in the day. "We were advised that the unknown pilot was not injured in the incident," Lee said. "The plane is owned by Sky Aviation out of Worland and was reportedly working as a crop duster in Fremont County." Lee said both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board had been notified of the incident previously and will be conducting an investigation. "Our agency had no further involvement, as the incident was not criminal in nature and there were no injuries or deaths involved," Lee said.
