An ultralight aircraft crashed in St. Amant Sunday night near a road lined with houses but managed to miss hitting any of them, an Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.

The pilot, who was the only person injured in the crash, had moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital, said Allison B. Hudson, the Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

The ultralight crashed in a grassy area next to Weber City Road in St. Amant at about 7:30 p.m.
