Evidence Collected From Site of Western Kentucky Plane Crash

Officials from two federal agencies have begun collecting evidence from the site of a small-plane crash in Western Kentucky that killed the pilot.

Investigators looking into the crash will review communications between the plane and the air-traffic control tower before the crash happened.

The twin-engine Cessna 310-R crashed on Monday, Nov. 26 off Kentucky 554, just outside Owensboro.

Authorities say 53-year-old Jerry John McKinney, of Sturgis, was killed as he headed to Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport from Evansville, Indiana.

Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board began their investigations, collecting evidence from the crash site and examining potential clues.
