Sadly, a plane crash in Central Florida left three passengers dead Friday. Investigators say a small airplane heading to Tennessee crashed into a Palm Coast single family home in Flagler County this afternoon. A homeowner was taken to the hospital, but did not suffer serious injuries in the Florida plane crash.
According to a Jan. 4 Huffington Post report, an FAA spokesperson verified that the Beechcraft BE35 aircraft (similar to the one pictured here) was flying to Downtown Island Airport in Knoxville, Tenn. before it went down.
On the plane crash in Florida, a witness said this:
"Planes go over here all the time, but this afternoon, I heard, 'putt, putt, putt,' and then I heard, 'boom.' I looked outside, and there were flames shooting up over the trees," said Robert Ferrigno, a resident who lives near the plane crash site.
Some reports say the pilot radioed in that the plane was smoking, shaking severely and the engines were rattling.
Witnesses on the ground confirmed earlier reports, as many report hearing a loud rattling noise just before the plane crashed into the Florida home.
When Florida Highway Patrol authorities arrived, they met with Susan Crockett, the homeowner who was inside at the time the plane crashed into her home.
A neighbor said the frantic woman managed to climb out of a window in her home after the plane smashed into her residence. She fled to her home to get help.
While Crockett did not sustain physical injuries from the catastrophe, she was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
The identities of the deceased in the plane crash in Florida have not been released at this time.
