Carroll County Airplane Crash Claims Pilot’s Life

By Alpert Schreyer on July 9, 2012

A single-engine airplane crash at Carroll County Regional Airport recently claimed the life of the plane’s pilot, according to a recent news article at

The pilot, a 64-year-old Derwood resident, was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were severe. He died about six hours after the fatal MD airplane crash occurred, according to hospital workers.

Witnesses to the accident reported that the pilot was about one mile away from the airport when he reported mechanical troubles with the plane. He tried to bring the plane into the airport, but crashed into a field about 500 yards short of the runway. The pilot was thrown from the plane during the crash. Rescue workers found him about 50 feet from the wreckage, still strapped to his seat.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), about 60 percent of all airplane crashes in the U.S. each year occur in fixed-wing aircraft being flown for personal enjoyment. Students who are learning to fly account for another 12 percent of all accidents. While pilot error causes some accidents, mechanical failures due to botched repairs or defective equipment also account for a significant number of crashes.

Defective products, repairs, or maintenance can all cause accidents in any kind of conveyance, including an aircraft. If you or someone you love has been injured due to a defect in a car, truck, boat, or aircraft, the experienced product liability lawyers in Maryland at Alpert Schreyer can help.
