Accident investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) report that no one was injured in a recent aviation accident at Orlando Sanford International Airport. They say that the small, single-engine aircraft crashed into a ditch after veering off the runway around 10 a.m. one recent morning. The FAA’s investigation is still ongoing, and the agency has not yet determined the cause of the crash, but investigators said that the aircraft sustained minor damage. This aviation accident is the second to occur in Florida in as many weeks. A single-engine aircraft recently had to make an emergency landing in the median of Interstate 75 near Tampa after experiencing engine problems. Orlando aviation accident attorney James O.
