Injuries Reported in Georgetown Plane Crash on Northwood Drive
GEORGETOWN, TX (July 24, 2023) – Sunday, a disastrous plane accident on Northwood Drive sent 3 people to the hospital.
The crash occurred just before noon in the 500 block of Northwood Drive near the Georgetown Executive Airport.
According to the Georgetown Fire Department, the plane crashed through the roof of a house. Fortunately, the house was an unoccupied duplex and no one is living there.
The Federal Aviation Administration revealed that the crash involved a single-engine Beech BE35 plane. Also, reports confirmed that the National Transportation Safety Board would lead the investigation.
Meanwhile, Georgetown Fire Department confirmed that three people occupied the plane at the time of the crash. Responders transported all of them to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening. Then, all of them were released later in the day.
The authorities said that the three parties were just on their way back from having breakfast at Kerrville when the plane began to have engine failure.
“Just veered away from the apartment complex behind you, and I believe he just had to make that split-second decision and ditched it into a single home instead,” City of Georgetown Battalion Chief Scott Gibson stated.
“They were in really good condition considering what happened,” witness Dylan King revealed. “They were scared, they didn’t know what was going on. They looked really confused. We had helped them down off the balcony and they were trying to jump through a hole in the roof. We opened the attic stairs and they got down that way.”
“They were limping,” King’s sister-in-law, Breale Morton said. “But besides like blood and a few gashes and burnt feet from walking up on the roof, they were in pretty good condition.”
“It is fairly minimally impacted. Probably the biggest concern is gonna be the fuel that has dripped from the attic to the first to the second floor,” added Gibson. “We’ve eliminated most of the ignition sources that are around. We’ve cut the power to the house.”
Due to the limited information available, the authorities continued to investigate the crash.
