Small aircraft are often hard to handle, and susceptible to the danger of changes in the weather. On Saturday afternoon, a small plane crash landed in a small district in Southern California. Thankfully, no one on the ground was hurt, but the small craft damaged two cars when it landed. Two people that were on the private plane were hurt when in careened towards the ground.
A Los Angeles Police Officer says that the plan went down just before noon last Saturday in the Pacoima area. It wasn’t far from Whiteman Airport, where it may have been planning to land. One person on board was seriously hurt, while the other was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Fire Department spokesman Eric Scott says that the plan landed between two buildings in the district, crushing two vehicles and an awning. While fuel leaked from the crash landed plan, there was no fire, sparing the other passengers from serious burn wounds or a fatal explosion. The investigators weren’t sure whether or not the plane had originated at the airport or was planning to land there.
This tragic emergency is only one of the many small aircraft accidents that happen across the United States every year. While it is rare for large commercial planes to get caught in an accident, these fragile, smaller crafts are often tumble after a gale or in stormy weather. There are also times when these small planes will have a malfunction because they aren’t made with the same detail and care as larger flight craft are.
If you were injured in a plane accident, then you should investigate the scene and determine who was at fault. If the pilot was negligent, or if the plane malfunctioned because of poor engineering, then you have a right to seek damages. Talk to a personal injury lawyer at the
