South Bend man dies in NW Indiana ultralight crash

LAPORTE, Ind. — An ultralight aircraft crash in northern Indiana has killed a 36-year-old man.

WSBT-TV and WNDU-TV report the crash Sunday morning in a LaPorte County corn field killed Benjamin Hubbard of South Bend.

The LaPorte County Sheriff's Department says Hubbard had arranged to meet a pilot friend in Plymouth, and when Hubbard didn't show up, the other pilot went over the ultralight's flight path and found the wreckage.

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. The investigation has been turned over to the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
