Greenville, SC (November 5, 2018) – In Greenville, two people lost their lives in a fatal airplane accident that happened when they tried to land a jet at an airport. The vehicle ran off the runway and immediately split in two, which caused a fuel leak.
Police say that, after their investigation, they have not been able to fully entertain a cause of the accident that killed the pilot and co-pilot at the Greenville Downtown Airport.
The plane immediately overshot the runway. Witnesses at the scene said that the plane looked like it landed without a problem, but then barreled down a steep embankment in the area. Police have since identified the pilot as 49-year-old John Christian Caswell and the co-pilot as 66-year-old Stephen George Fox. Caswell died an hour after the accident occurred.
A married man and woman were passengers in the plane, who are now in critical condition at the hospital.
As of now, the investigation into the incident continues.
