French authorities say a Belgian F-16 fighter jet has crashed in a populated area in western France and one of its pilots is caught on a high-voltage electricity line.
A spokesman for the regional prefecture, or administration, told The Associated Press that the plane crashed on Thursday in the town of Pluvigner in Brittany.
