Plane Crash-San Antonio

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration gather information at the scene of a small private plane crash Monday in San Antonio. Three people were killed when the plane crashed Sunday evening near San Antonio International Airport.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Officials said three people were killed when a single-engine plane crashed while attempting to land at San Antonio International Airport.

San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said the plane went down around 6:30 p.m. Sunday in a commercial district about a mile west of the airport.

Hood said the plane took off from Sugar Land, southwest of Houston, and was heading to Boerne when it experienced engine trouble and diverted to San Antonio. Boerne is about 30 miles north of the city.

Hood said flight logs indicate three people were on board.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Peter Knudson said federal investigators were expected to arrive at the scene Tuesday. Officials say no structures were damaged in the crash and no one else was injured.
