Witness Saw Plane In East Haven Crash Upside Down

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Federal investigators looking for the cause of a deadly Connecticut plane crash say a witness reported seeing the aircraft traveling upside-down as it sped nose-first toward the ground.

The preliminary report issued Tuesday by the National Transportation Safety Board does not reveal a possible cause for the Aug. 9 crash of the 10-seat airplane.

The accident killed the two people on the plane and two girls inside a house in East Haven, Conn.

A witness driving along Interstate 95 told investigators he saw the plane traveling at a high rate of speed as it descended near Tweed-New Haven airport. Investigators said previously that the plane was inverted when it hit one of the houses.
