A California small plane crash leaves authorities with questions. The wreckage of this small plane sat in the yard of a Rio Linda, California, family Sunday morning after it crashed there Saturday evening, according to KCRA 3 news.
After narrowly avoiding power lines and landing 120 feet from a home where 40 people were attending a party, the three men aboard the plane walked away from the crash.
The pilot and the other two men aboard the plane seemed to be calm and possibly in shock after the crash, according to the homeowner. Facial cuts and scrapes appeared to be the men’s only visible injuries.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records show the plane is from Beaverton, Oregon.
A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said that the pilot reported that his engines were failing and crashed at about 7:40 p.m. Saturday evening.
Though NTSB investigators could not confirm the exact nature of the problem on Sunday, the failure of both engines would typically indicate a lack of fuel.
Once it receives a report from the FAA, the NTSB will investigate the accident further. FAA is sending an investigator to the site.
