No Serious Injuries After Fiery Plane Crash in Statesboro, Georgia
STATESBORO, GA. – According to a news article posted online by wtoc.com, no serious injuries occurred during a fiery plane crash in Statesboro, Georgia. It is not clear yet how the crash happened. A federal agency will be conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the accident, and little additional information will likely be released until that investigation is further along.*
The accident happened at about 3 p.m. on March 5 outside of Statesboro. The plane was reportedly flying from Savannah, Georgia, and crashed during a landing attempt. The plane then caught on fire. Fortunately, emergency responders said that the two people inside of the plane were able to exit the aircraft before it ignited.
Firefighters responding to the scene extinguished the fire, and an ambulance crew transported the two people to East Georgia Regional Medical Center. WTOC reports that they were both evaluated for injuries and released. They have not been identified at this time, and no information was reported about ownership of the plane. The plane model was also not reported.
The cause of accident has not been determined, and the report from WTOC said that sheriff’s deputies did not comment on the collision. Local authorities are reportedly deferring to federal investigators.
The National Transportation Safety Board is planning to investigate the accident and will be sending a team to look over the wreckage and speak to the people involved. No information about the events leading to the crash was released. Until NTSB releases a preliminary report, it is likely that sparse information will be reported about the accident.
