Nashville plane crash near YMCA claims lives of four family members

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a tragic plane crash in Nashville. The crash claimed the lives of four family members, including a teenager.

Reuters reports that Glenn Mull, 62, owner of Mull Farms and Feeding Inc. in Pawnee Rock, Kansas, his wife, Elaine Mull, 63, their daughter, Amy Harter, 40, and granddaughter, Samantha Harter, 16, were identified Tuesday as the victims in the crash.

Mr. Mull was preparing to land the twin-engine Gulfstream at the John C. Tune Airport Monday night when it crashed beside the Bellevue YMCA, about 15 miles from the airport.

No other injuries were reported.

NTSB investigators have determined that the impact was about 150 yards long and 50 to 100 yards from a crowded YMCA, NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss said.

Up to 300 people had reportedly entered the Bellevue Family YMCA in the two hours before the plane crashed.

Weiss said NTSB investigators hoped to move the plane wreckage indoors and to complete the on-site part of their investigation in three to five days.
