NTSB investigation underway into deadly Harrison Co. plane crash
HARRISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Police told us one person died and another person was injured in a small plane crash.
It happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Airport. Police said there were two people on board. A woman was pronounced dead at the hospital and a man is at the hospital with serious injuries.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the man was the pilot and the woman was a passenger.
Investigators said the weather could have been a factor in the crash. We’re told the small, single-engine plane nose-dived into the grass.
“The plane just kind of crunched up. The wing was broken and there was significant damage to the plane,” Cynthiana Police Chief Doug Robinson said.
Police said debris was scattered 30-40 yards from the scene.
Both the Federal Aviation Administration and the NTSB have started to investigate. The NTSB held a press conference Thursday afternoon about the crash:
