Last Friday evening, a single-engine plane crashed on a golf course in Harris County, Texas. According to Fox 4 News, serious injuries were sustained by two of the occupants.
The deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office found a small damaged aircraft upside down in the 18000 block of Clay Road. The single-engine aircraft, a 1977 Mooney crashed near the 8th hole of Pine Forest Country club at approximately 7:00 p.m.
The plane was coming from San Antonio with an intention of landing at the West Houston Airport. The two occupants of the airplane, a man and a woman, were trapped inside the wreckage. They were alive but had sustained serious injuries.
It took approximately one hour to recover the passengers from the mangled aircraft. They were promptly airlifted with a Life Flight helicopter and flown to a local trauma center. The recovery of the occupants was difficult due to the extent of the damage and the aircraft’s position.
The cause of the crash is currently unknown. The incident is currently under investigation by Harris County Sheriff, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the Department of Public Safety.
