Texas Plane Crash: Investigation Beginning
The San Antonio Express is reporting that a plane crash outside of Houston has left a large crater in the ground and a search for survivors and evidence. The Federal Aviation Administration is confirming that a Beechcraft King Air crashed near Pearland Regional Airport around 9 a.m. as the plane was attempting to land. The plane was scheduled to land in Galveston, Texas but diverted due to poor visibility. There appear to be no survivors.
