Plane Crash Kills Three in Maryland, Three Others Presumed Dead, One Missing
Three people on board a small, private jet were killed when the plane crashed into a house in Maryland’s Montgomery County, MyFoxDC.com reported.
Three residents of the home are unaccounted for, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Chief Steve Lohr said.
At least three people didn’t survive the Monday crash into the home in Gaithersburg, a Washington, D.C. suburb, said Pete Piringer, a Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman.
Piringer said a fourth person may have been aboard.
Piringer said the jet crashed into one home around 11 a.m., setting it and two others on fire. Crews had the fire under control within an hour and were searching for anyone who may have been in the homes. An eye witness described the jet as flying low, gear down and inverted just prior to impact with the house.
