3 Victims Recovered Following Plane Wreck in Tehachapi
TEHACHAPI, CA (February 25, 2019) – Three victims were recovered from Thursday’s plane crash in the Tehachapi Mountains near the 5 Freeway.
The Kern County search and rescue crews were able to continue their search and investigation of the plane crash on Sunday in the mountains. Per reports, severe weather delayed their investigation.
According to Sgt. Steve Williams, per a radar analysis, the pilot of the double-engine Beechcraft private plane was trying to get around a weather system but at this point, authorities are investigating the ultimate cause of the crash.
One person was first confirmed dead at first until the other two were recovered much later.
According to reports, the aircraft was reported overdue on Thursday night and officials announced that it had crashed in a remote area in the Tehachapi mountains. The airplane was said to have a flight plan from San Luis Obispo to Los Angeles.
Neither of the victim’s identity was released. A follow-up investigation is underway.
