Clayton, along with another person, were traveling in a single-engine private plane and were taken to the hospital after the plane crashed into a house in Columbus. Clayton and his passenger suffered burn injuries.
The plane is one that took him nine years to build himself, finishing it about seven years ago.
The plane had mechanical issues in the past. Clayton thought he had those issues fixed, which was the reason for his test flight the day of the crash.
