A plane crash in the U.S. caused a fire that killed 2 people and damaged a car on the ground October 30. According to US media reports, on the 29th local time, a small plane in the suburbs of Las Vegas, USA, crashed shortly after takeoff and caused a fire, killing two people on board. The accident also caused damage to a trailer on the ground, and the owner of the vehicle escaped.
Las Vegas Clark County Fire Chief Thomas Touchstone said the plane took off from North Las Vegas Airport with two people on board. The plane struck a metal wall 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) northwest of Kenderson Airport.
Tachstone said there were no survivors on the plane. The names of the victims were not immediately announced.
The crash caused a fire and damaged a trailer on the ground. The owner of the trailer, Bruce Langson, escaped from the car. Langston said that when he heard the plane flying very low, he knew something was wrong. Soon, he heard a bang and saw a “huge ball of fire.” The plane’s fuel splashed on his trailer.
Another eyewitness described it, “It’s like the scariest horror movie scene you have ever seen.”
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the accident.
