FAA officials said Thursday that the pilot of a plane that crashed Thursday in Alaska had a medical certificate.
The FAA said the plane was traveling on Interstate 5 in Alaska when it went down.
The pilot was identified as Scott Allen, a 37-year-old pilot from Houston.
Allen, who was airlifted to a hospital in Anchorage and later released, told investigators he was not flying in the same direction as the plane when it crashed, the FAA said.
The pilot and a passenger survived the crash, according to the FAA.
The pilot was able to land in the nearby town of Tofino, the agency said.
He told investigators that he had lost control of the plane as he was about to make a turn, according with the FAA statement.
Allen was on his way to visit family in Colorado when he was involved in a crash earlier in the day.
The crash occurred in the northern part of Alaska, the Alaska Dispatch News reported.
