December 29, 2019


At least five people were killed when a twin-engine plane with six people on board crashed in Louisiana on Saturday morning.

Lafayette Fire Chief Robert Benoit confirmed four passengers and the pilot were killed in the crash, while one passenger survived and was taken to the hospital in unknown condition. A second person not affiliated with the plane was taken to the hospital with injuries.

Lafayette Police Lt. Scott Morgan said the incident took place at 9:22 a.m. local time after the aircraft departed from Lafayette Regional Airport.

The plane crashed in a parking lot near a Walmart and U.S. Post Office building in Lafayette, at the intersection of Verot School Road and Feu Follet – about a mile away from the airport.

Video and photos showed a trail of scorched and burning grass around the crash site in the city of Lafayette. A blackened car sat in the post office parking lot, which was carpeted with scattered tree limbs.
