Three People Killed in Plane Crash in Barstow

Even as California plane crash attorneys continued their analysis of the Long Beach plane crash last week, there has been another crash, this one in Barstow. A small plane crashed close to Barstow-Daggett Airport in San Bernardino County on Sunday.

The plane, a Cessna 210 was on its way from John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Santa Ana to Henderson Executive Airport (HND) in Henderson, Nevada, when it crashed about 2.5 miles east of Barstow-Daggett Airport (DAG). The plane burst into flames after it crashed. There were three people onboard, and all three were killed.

According to witnesses, the plane looked like it was spiraling out of the sky just before it crashed into a hillside. The airplane is registered to Debt-Free LLC.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have begun individual investigations into the crash. New information coming in about the victims of the crash has revealed that the victims were a woman and her two children. The woman is apparently a resident of Truckee, California. Her husband has confirmed that his wife and two children, a six-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl, were killed in the crash, but the Coroner’s Office has not yet positively identified the bodies because of the extensive burns that have left them unrecognizable.

This plane crash comes just a few days after the deadly Long Beach plane crash last week that killed five people. The National Transportation Safety Board is already involved in that crash, and has begun the process of analyzing the wreckage of the plane to understand the reasons for the crash. The investigators will likely be looking at a number of factors, including the actions of the pilots just before the crash, as well as the functioning of plane components as possible factors in the Long Beach tragedy.

  1. In my opinion the plane was OK. It`s the pilot fault.
    The relatives of victims can contact some airplane injuries lawyers to obtain compensation.
