A single-engine plane piloted by a 68-year-old man crashed around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in Clifton Park, New York, reports The Troy Record.
The plane’s 67-year-old passenger died in the crash. The pilot remains unconscious and in critical condition at Albany Medical Center.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) arrived at the crash site within 12 hours to begin collecting evidence that would be destroyed once the plane was moved.
Nothing is ruled out at this point in the investigation--including who may have been at the controls when the plane went down.
After the initial investigation at the crash site, evidence will be moved to a secure location in Connecticut for further investigation.
The NTSB will review information gathered at the scene, along with documented evidence, such as the plane’s history, the plane’s production and maintenance history, and the environment surrounding the accident.
“Through our process we try to thoroughly and respectfully gather as much of the facts as we can to try to come to the best understanding we can,” said NTSB‘s air safety investigator.
A probable cause report will be released in 60 to 90 days. In nine to 12 months, the final report will be released.
