A crop-duster pilot from Glen Rose died in the crash of his aircraft at 1:49 p.m. Saturday near 1155 Hlavenka Road northeast of West, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman said.

Senior Trooper D.L. Wilson identified the victim as John Allen Seay, 75.

The airplane struck a guy wire on a power pole and went down, Wilson said.

He did not say whether the pilot died at the scene or if he was taken to a hospital.

The National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates the cause of aircraft accidents, could not be reached for comment Saturday.
