NEW: Two hurt after plane crashes in Carrollton
The Carrollton Police Department has closed a portion of Hebron Parkway while officials investigate the cause of a plane crash.
Just before 8:00pm this evening, a single engine aircraft (Mooney M20K) was coming in to land at Addison Airport when it crashed along Hebron Parkway near Province Drive approximately 3 miles northwest of the airport. Weather conditions at the time were cloudy and visibility was less than five miles.
Addison Air Traffic Control officials reported to emergency responders they had lost contact with the downed aircraft. Carrollton Fire/EMS and Police along with Addison FD’s ARFF Truck (Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting) responded to the scene.
Carrollton’s Medic 114 and Medic 117 crews transported the pilot and a passenger to a local hospital in stable condition. The extent of their injuries has not yet been released.
A portion of the plane did catch fire, but firefighters were able to contain it.
Lanes of Hebron Parkway will likely remain closed throughout the night while authorities investigate the scene and clear up the wreckage.
