Single engine plane crashed near Hebron High School in Carrollton
One person died in the crash.
A small plane crashed near Hebron High School in Carrollton that resulted in one death and two others being taken to the hospital.
The small, single engine plane took off from Addison Airport at 11:35 a.m. It is unknown what caused the crash, but it crashed by a train track in a field that is next to Hebron’s 9th Grade Center.
“There were three people on board,” said Jon Stovall, Carrollton public information officer. “Two were taken to the hospital and one remains deceased inside the plane.”
Stovall said there was at least one male aboard the plane but was unsure about the other two. He said the school and the students were never in danger from the crash and the school was not locked down.
“We will have investigators come out shortly to try and determine what caused the crashed and remove the wreckage,” Stovall said. “We also have made contact with the trains that will be passing through so they can be aware of the situation.”
