2 Killed When Plane Crashes Along Texas Service Road


(AP) — Authorities say two people were killed when a small plane crashed along a highway service road in North Texas shortly after taking off. The Federal Aviation Administration said the single-engine Wheeler Express CT crashed Monday afternoon about a mile west of the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport, located in the city just west of Dallas.

Grand Prairie Fire Chief Robert Fite said the plane hit a pickup truck traveling on the service road, but that person was only slightly injured. Fite said the plane caught fire after coming to rest in a grassy area near a Sonic drive-in restaurant.
