Plane Crash in Louisville Township

On November 23, 2019, at approximately 3:57 p.m., Scott County Sheriff’s Office 911 Dispatch received a report of a single engine plane that had collided with a power line, become entangled, and was suspended upside down in the 2500 block of 150th Street West in Louisville Township, south of Shakopee, Minnesota.


Initial investigation indicated that the plane, a single engine prop Piper Cub was traveling south, hit a cluster of power lines and became suspended on a guideline, upside down.  Once the power line was de-energized, the pilot was rescued from the plane.   


The pilot, who was the sole occupant of the plane, was identified as Thomas Koskovich (65) of Shakopee.  Koskovich did not sustain any injuries as a result of this incident. 


“This incident could have been much worse,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “We are grateful the pilot was able to walk away without any injuries.” 


The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in this incident by the Shakopee Fire Department, Allina Ambulance, Minnesota State Patrol, Minnesota Valley Electric Company, and Xcel Energy Company.


The investigation into the crash was turned over to the Federal Aviation Administration.
