Gwinnett County fire department spokesman Lt. Eric Eberly says emergency workers responded to reports of a small plane crash around 2:10 p.m. Saturday.
Eberly says witnesses said the plane took off from Gwinnett County Airport and then turned sharply to the left before crashing into a roadway. It then slid through a fence and came to rest in the parking lot of a nearby business.
The pilot, who hadn't been identified, was alone in the single-engine plane. He was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center.
Eberly says there were no passengers on the plane and no one on the ground was injured.
