Plane Crash in Daytona Beach Injures Two

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on June 11, 2018

On Saturday, June 9th, a plane, confirmed as a Piper PA 44, departed from an airport believed to be located within Daytona Beach.  At the time that the airplane left from the airport, there were numerous thunderstorms reported in the area.  The plane, carrying two individuals, flew through the air over Daytona Beach and then, due to a series of events that is currently under investigation (although potentially related to the thunderstorms), crashed into several homes before finally coming to rest inside of a retention pond.

A report issued by officials working within the Daytona Beach Fire Department indicated that the incident took place close to 3:00 in the afternoon, and that the homes impacted by the careening plane were situated on the 100 block of Campanello Court.  Two people were inside of the Piper PA 44 at the time of the crash, and the reports made it clear that they were a flying instructor and a student who was, at the time, receiving flying lessons.  Authorities also indicated that, at the time of the crash, they are not certain who was in charge of the aircraft.

The homes affected by the collision were mostly uninhabited at the time that the plane hit them.  One of the two homes suffered from relatively minor damage, but the other received a hefty blow from the airplane that resulted in a chunk of its roof being torn away.  Inside of the first, less damaged home, was a man and his daughter, and it is highly fortunate that both of these individuals had recently vacated the side of the house where the plane struck.

A witness to the incident is the person who initially called 9-1-1 after seeing the plane land in the retention pond.  This individual claimed that the two inhabitants of the aircraft were able to swim from the sinking plane without too much difficulty.  Both of the people were believed to have suffered from minor injuries, although the full extent of these injuries was not included in the initial report.

The entire incident is currently under investigation, initially by the Daytona Beach Police Department and then by the National Transportation Safety Board.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.
