A Houston man has been slightly hurt when his glider crashed in a Central Texas field after missing some power lines.
The Eagle newspaper reports the crash happened late Wednesday afternoon north of Brenham. The glider came to rest about 20 yards from a home.
The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot maneuvered the Glasflugel H-301 to avoid power lines but then hit a tree.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said the pilot of the one-seat glider sustained minor cuts and declined treatment. His name wasn't immediately released.
The FAA said the glider suffered substantial damage.
Brenham is about 65 miles northwest of Houston.
