Small Plane Crash-Lands in Hauppauge
A Cirrus SR22 plane crash-landed in an industrial park in Hauppauge, New York, on March 5th.
The plane was en-route to Republic Airport, Farmingdale, when it developed some engine issues. Authorities said the parachute attached to the plane deployed before it went down in a grassy area, just 8 miles east of Republic Airport.
The plane was carrying two people at the time, including the pilot Louis Obergh and his daughter, Rachel Obergh. Both of them suffered minor injuries. They were returning after visiting University of Rhode Island.
The FAA and the NTSB are investigating.
