Injuries Reported in Fullerton Plane Incident at Fullerton Municipal Airport
FULLERTON, CA (August 31, 2021) – Monday afternoon, two people sustained injuries in a plane accident at Fullerton Municipal Airport.
The incident happened at around 1:55 p.m. when the Piper PA-24-400 struck a chain-link fence as it tried to land. The plane slid to a stop on the runway at the Fullerton Municipal Airport.
“It looks like they just came in too low on approach and hit the perimeter fence around the airport,” said Fullerton Municipal Airport Manager Brendan O’Reilly.
As a result, the aircraft lost a wheel and the crash bent its landing gear and part of its propeller.
Then, responders took the pilot and a passenger to UCI Medical Center in unknown condition.
The incident shut down the airport for multiple hours.
Due to the limited information available, the authorities continue to investigate the crash.
When involved in a plane accident, it is important to have strong legal representation on your side. Above all, make sure everyone involved is in good condition. Then, contact authorities for medical treatment or immediate rescue. After that, reach out to an experienced legal team.
