SEBAGO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A small plane has crashed on Sebago Lake.

That plane went down around four o'clock Saturday afternoon off Nason Beach on Sebago Lake. That is a popular spot in the summer, but this time of year it's quiet except for ice fishermen and snowmobilers.

According to the FAA the pilot of the Piper PA-12 was trying to land on the frozen lake when the plane flipped over.

Officials say the plane is registered to Air Ads Inc., in Standish, Maine.

The tail number is N3806M.

The pilot, who has not been identified, was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.

Eye witnesses tell NEWS CENTER the plane sounded starved for fuel just before the crash. Those who live on the water's edge say there was only one person in the plane. They say the plane never went through the ice, but when it hit the impact shook the ground.

The plane right now sits about two hundred yards from the shore and it will likely sit there until investigators from the FAA arrive on scene.
