Two people die as small plane crashes into SUV. A small plane crashed into an SUV during an attempted emergency landing this Thursday. The crash resulted in the death of the two passengers of the plane, also slightly injuring the SUV driver.
According to the authorities, a Beechcraft Baron aircraft with two people on board was involved in the crash. The accident took place when the pilot of the plane attempted an emergency landing. The attempt was made around 11:30 a.m. on the side of the State Road 200 in Ocala. This was around an hour and a half from Orlando, Florida.
Eyewitnesses have told the police that the plane suddenly nosedived and then hit the ground. Authorities believe that the plane crash was caused by a sudden and serious mechanical failure. However, it is too early to determine the exact cause. Investigators from National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are in the process of inspecting the scene of the accident and gathering evidence. This will be followed by an explanation of what happened and how the crash took place.
The authorities have not yet revealed the identities of the people involved in the crash. Apart from the two passengers who died in the plane crash, an elderly SUV driver was injured when the plane hit the vehicle. The driver sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.
In the wake of the accident, the authorities shut down State Road 200 for the traffic. This was a necessary measure as the debris from the crash lay scattered by the roadside as well as on the road. It is expected that NTSB will reveal a definite cause for the accident in an update soon. Once an explanation arrives, it will also be possible to determine who is legally liable for the tragic loss of life and property involved in this plane crash.
