2 Transported After Small Plane Crash At Addison Airport

ADDISON (CBSDFW.COM) - Two people were transported, one by ambulance and one air-lifted, after a small plane crashed at Addison Airport Saturday afternoon.

Crews and ambulances are at the scene after two passengers were transported to the hospital after a plane crash at around 4:45 p.m.

Edward Martell of the City of Addison said two people took off from the airport in a Piper Sports aircraft and that it was a training flight.

Martell said as soon as the plane took off from the ground, the two reported engine problems. As the plane made its way back to the ground, it crashed nose-first just short of the runway.

The Addison Fire Department responded immediately and cut the victims out of the wreckage of the plane.

The spokesperson said both people suffered serious injuries. Their names have not been released.
