On Sunday afternoon, a Piper Super Cub crashed on takeoff near Mile 95 of the Parks Highway. State Troopers say the report of the incident came in around 4:30 pm. The pilot, 46 year old Toby Ashley of Idaho, was preparing for takeoff when his plane hit a rut in the runway. That caused the right wing of his plane to strike a berm. The plane suffered significant damage, but Troopers say Ashley was uninjured. The FAA and NTSB were notified of the incident.
