Illinois Plane Accident Kills Pilot

March 22, 2017
Over the weekend, a plane crash in the eastern part of Illinois took the life of a man. David Goodwin from Martinsville, Illinois told family members that he was going to go flying, and after they had not heard from him for several hours, they contacted police on Saturday morning and reported him missing. Authorities located the plane crash site near the Indiana border in a Clark County, Illinois cornfield. Jeff Pearce, the Clark County Coroner, pronounced Goodwin dead at the scene of the accident, and his autopsy is scheduled for Monday. It has not yet been determined what caused the plane crash and the Federal Aviation Administration has joined the investigation.
Aviation accidents do not occur as frequently as auto accidents, but they typically result in fatalities. The chance of survival for an individual involved in a plane crash is rare due to the rate of speed a plane travels and the distance in the air that it travels. Those factors combined result in devastating accidents that have deadly results. Plane crashes can be caused by the negligent actions of the pilot, but they can also be caused by errors of the airline, mechanical crew, or air traffic controllers. If you have lost a loved one in an aviation accident, no amount of money will ease the heartbreak you are experiencing.
