Little Rock Plane Crash: Members of Arkansas environmental consulting firm identified as victims in crash south of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
Five employees of an environmental consulting company in Arkansas died in a plane crash shortly after taking off from Little Rock. The company says it is “extremely saddened” by the deaths.
Authorities say that the twin-engine Beech BE20 was going to Columbus, Ohio, when it crashed a few miles south of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
Paul Nony, the senior vice president of CTEH, said in a statement, “We are very sad to hear about the deaths of our colleagues in Little Rock.” “We ask everyone to think and pray for the families of those who died and for the whole CTEH team.”
A company spokesman told The Associated Press that the people on the plane, including the pilot, were responding to an explosion at a metals plant near Cleveland this week that killed one worker and sent more than a dozen to the hospital.
