Plane Crash in Daytona Beach Leaves Two Seriously Injured
A plane crash within the Spruce Creek Airport located at Daytona Beach resulted in two individuals being taken to nearby hospitals as trauma alerts. Reports from emergency response teams working within Daytona indicated that the incident took place sometime during the day on Sunday, October 27th. The reports did not mention at what precise time the accident happened, and at the time of this writing it is not clear just which of the numerous emergency crews located within Daytona Beach responded to the reports of the crash.
Most importantly, the reasons behind the incident are not currently known. The Federal Aviation Administration’s initial words on the crash leave much room for speculation, stating only that the aircraft in question was a Questair Venture and that as it came in for a landing after something went wrong, which caused the plane to bounce around the tarmac before coming to a stop. It was not immediately apparent from the report whether or not the plane crashed onto its side, flipped over, or whether it perhaps crashed onto its nose. The FAA simply stated that the landing was “hot,” leaving room for all sorts of speculation and supposition.
Not much is known about the people who were inside of the aircraft when the crash took place. The reports stated that two of the people aboard were badly injured and rushed to a nearby hospital where they were admitted as trauma alerts. What we don’t know, however, is whether or not anyone other than these two individuals was inside of the plane at the time of the crash.
Officials within the Spruce Creek Airport as well as those working within Daytona Beach have yet to release the names of either of the two people injured aboard the aircraft. Officials also haven’t stated what the exact medical conditions of these two people were post-crash. What we have instead is the acknowledgment that the airplane did indeed crash, but the extent of this crash and its effects on the individuals within the aircraft remains outside of the public sphere.
An investigation undertaken by the FAA remains ongoing, and any updates about the situation will be posted in traditional news outlets.
