Two people were injured Sunday afternoon when their small aircraft crashed into a field in east Fort Worth.
A witness called police about 4:30 p.m. from the 800 block of Beach Street to report that a small plane crashed in a vacant field near the Trinity River and Gateway Park Drive.
The pilot of the single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza reported a loss of engine power shortly before touching down, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.
Two people on board were injured but are expected to make full recoveries, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.
They were alert and breathing when first responders arrived and were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in stable condition, he said.
The National Transportation Safety Board is an independent Federal agency charged by Congress with investigating every civil aviation accident the United States. The NTSB determines the probable cause of the accidents and issues safety recommendations aimed at preventing future accidents. In addition, the NTSB carries out special studies concerning transportation safety and coordinates the resources of the Federal Government and other organizations to provide assistance to victims and their family members impacted by major transportation disasters.
