Plane crashes after taking off from Livermore Municipal Airport

Pilot was sole person onboard during crash; condition unknown

A single-engine Cessna 120 crashed late Wednesday morning after taking off from Livermore Municipal Airport, according to a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilot had just taken off from Runway 25L when the plane went down nearby around 11:50 a.m., FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.

The pilot was the only person on board at the time of the crash, and they were transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

The crash will be investigated by the FAA as well as the National Transportation Safety Board, the lead agency in the investigation, and that process typically takes about a year to determine the cause of a crash.
