Plane crash in Munroe Park leaves three dead

April 6, 2011, 09:43 pm

A single-engine plane leaving from Bedford County airport in Ohio crashed in Michigan on March 29, leaving three men dead, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The Piper Malibu Mirrage was transporting three men who were taking the aircraft on a return flight to Michigan, the source says. The plane was supposed to land around 4 p.m. However, witnesses report the aircraft began to malfunction suddenly.

"The plane missed a line of trees and nose-dived into a soccer field in Munson Park just east of Custer Airport near the city of Monroe, Michigan. The crash occurred near a group of homes and narrowly missed where a group of high school students was preparing for a tennis match," the source says.

The pilot, president of a Toledo manufacturing firm, and two of his employees died during the crash. According to the Toledo Blade, the family members of the pilot believe engine failure is to blame. However, the Munroe News reports that it could take up to a year to determine the ultimate cause of the crash.

Pilot life insurance is always an important consideration for those who fly, as mechanical failures can occur unexpectedly and cause fatal accidents. With pilot insurance coverage, aviators may be able to take care of their families after they are gone.
