Two planes collided at the Carroll County Regional Airport on Saturday afternoon, according to a news release from the Maryland State Police.
There were no injuries as a result of the collision, which occurred at about 3:49 p.m., according to the release. The pilot of an Aerobatic Biplane failed to see a Piper Single low wing plane as both attempted to land. The Aerobatic struck the Piper from above and made a hard landing on the grassy field adjacent to the runway. The Piper completed a safe landing on the runway, according to the release.
The pilot of the Aerobatic was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution, and the pilot and passenger of the Piper refused medical treatment on the scene, according to the release.
The Maryland State Police Criminal Investigative Division and Carroll County Sheriff's Office are continuing the investigation.
