Several people dead after plane accident near Tweed New Haven Airport

Posted by Paul Levin | Aug 12, 2013 | 0 Comments

Authorities have reported two fatalities after a small propeller plane crashed into two homes near Connecticut's Tweed New Haven Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft, a small multi-engine passenger plane, left Teterboro Airport in New Jersey early Friday morning and crashed into a residential area at 11:25 a.m. Officials believe the rainy weather caused poor visibility for the pilot, who crashed while trying to land at Tweed New Haven Airport. After being struck by the plane, both houses caught fire.

Emergency responders at the scene report that at least three people are missing, including the plane's pilot and two young children who were in one of the houses at the time of the crash.

“We presume there is going to be a very bad outcome,” local fire chief Douglas Jackson said.

Our team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, understands how devastating losing loved ones in such a tragic accident is and send their condolences to all those affected by this loss.
