State Senator’s Plane Hits Fence at Dallas Love Field

DALLAS, TX (KWES) -

A close call for a state senator who represents West Texas.

State Senator Kel Seliger was piloting the plane when it hit a fence at Dallas Love Field Airport.

That comes from our NBC affiliate, KXAS, in Dallas.

The Federal Aviation Administration told KXAS in Dallas, Seliger was preparing to take off when he mistakenly turned onto a service road thinking it was a taxiway.

That's when the plane's wing clipped a fence. 

Seliger tweeted out, thanks for the calls and everything was fine.

Seliger represents 37 counties from the panhandle to the Permian Basin.

Those counties include Midland, Odessa and Howard.
