Daytona Beach Plane Crash Injures Two

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 11, 2018

At approximately 3 p.m. this past Saturday afternoon, two people suffered minor injuries when the plane they were flying crashed into two local homes, before coming to a rest in a neighborhood retention pond.

Daytona Beach Fire & Rescue, as well as the Daytona Police Department were dispatched to the 100th block of Campanello Court over the weekend, near North Clyde Morris Boulevard & LPGA Boulevard, in response to calls of an aviation accident in the area. Upon arrival, local authorities discovered that the aircraft had hit two houses, tearing the roof off of one residence, before landing upside-down in the nearby artificial lake. “One of the houses had minor damage while the other had ‘more extensive damage’ and a hole in the roof,” stated Daytona Beach Fire Department spokeswoman Sasha Staton.

Rescuers pulled two people from the crash, one pilot and one student from the ATP Flight School in Daytona Beach, both of whom suffered minor injuries in the accident. They were transported to Halifax Hospital for additional medical treatment. Their names have yet to be released. It is unclear who was piloting the airplane at the time of the incident, however, it is under further investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board. Authorities do believe that the weather could have potentially played its part in the accident, as there were severe thunderstorms in the area at the time.

Although commercial airliner accidents do occur, it is typically the smaller airplanes that are involved in a majority of plane crashes. Faulty or defective aircraft parts, poor weather conditions, and human error are the usual reasons behind an aviation accident. The NTSB is required to investigate all plane crashes, no matter how small or large.
