Two people were killed in a plane crash after a small UPS plane collided with a paraglider in Houston. The incident occurred at around 9:40 a.m. yesterday morning in Fulshear, Texas, just outside of Houston.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane had just departed Bush Intercontinental Airport for Victoria, Texas. It had traveled about 50 miles southwest of the airport when it hit a paraglider in Fulshear. The paraglider, a male, fell to the ground, landing in a nearby neighborhood. His parachute and other equipment were later found a few miles west of him.
The plane, a single-engine Cessna 208, crash-landed at a shooting range called the Brazos River Sportsman’s Club nearby. Both the paraglider and the pilot suffered fatal injuries in the collision. There were no other passengers on the plane.
The identities of the victims who were killed in the Houston plane and paraglider crash have not yet been released. The Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident.
