Tulsa, OK – Report released on Tulsa plane crash
TULSA, Okla. (AP) A preliminary report by federal investigators says a small plane that crashed in a Tulsa park clipped a radio tower's steel guy wire before slamming into the ground and bursting into flames.
All five on board were killed in the Saturday morning crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report on the crash Wednesday.
The report says the six-passenger Piper PA-32 was on its way to Dallas from nearby Jones Riverside Airport in Tulsa when it crashed in foggy conditions at 10:42 a.m.
Killed in the crash were pilot Dr. Stephen Lester; his wife Dana; daughters Laura, 16, and Christina, 13; and Dr. Ken Veteto.
The group was traveling to watch the University of Oklahoma football game against BYU in Arlington, Texas.
