A small plane crashed near Newark, Ohio on the night of Thursday, August 25, killing a 51-year-old pilot from Pataskala, Ohio.
According to 10TV, the accident occurred shortly after the pilot took off from Newark-Heath airport. The plane reportedly clipped a tree and then crashed into the backyard of a home in close proximity to the airport.
The pilot, who was flying solo in his single-engine, single-prop Lancair 235, was found alive after the crash but died before he could be removed from the plane.
“The plane was completely demolished,” said witness Cassidy Clapp. “We saw the man in there and tried to keep him conscious, talk to him, tell him not to move. It was horrible.”
A preliminary investigation attributes the crash to a mechanical problem, though a full investigation will follow.
The Newark Advocate reports that this is the second man from Pataskala, Ohio, to die in a plane crash in 2011. A 68-year-old resident died in May when his plane went down in the Chattahoochee National Forest in northern Georgia.
