PALM COAST, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) — The three people killed after a small plane crashed into a house have been identified.
The 1957 Beechcraft H35 Bonanza was heading from Fort Pierce, Fla. to Knoxville, Tenn. on Friday. Upon experiencing mechanical problems, the pilot attempted to land at a central Florida airport but instead crashed into a house.
Florida Highway Patrol officials identified the victims Saturday as 57-year-old Michael Anders, of Albany, Ky., 59-year-old Duane Shaw, of Albany, Ky. and 42-year-old Charissee Peoples, of Indianapolis.
The pilot told controllers that the engine was shaky and the plane was smoking minutes before crashing into a Palm Coast home.
Homeowner Susan Crockett was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
