Two Die In Sugar Grove Plane Crash

From the Chicago Tribune:

Two men were killed tonight when a small plane crashed in a subdivision near Waubonsee Community College in the far west suburb of Sugar Grove.

The two fatalities — both men — were in the plane, said Kane County Sheriff’s spokesman Pat Gengler.

Gengler said at about 7 p.m. residents saw a ball of fire and the sheriff’s office received a 911 call. Gengler said they believe the plane struck the ground and the debris of the plane hit a home at Route 47 and Old Oaks Road,

There was very little damage to the home, where four people were inside, but the debris hit a corner of a garage, he said. No one in the home was injured, he said.

The impact downed power lines and there was a large swath of debris from the impact of the plane, which was nearly completely destroyed, said Gengler.

From the Sun-Times:

Two people were killed after a small single engine aircraft crashed into a house in west suburban Sugar Grove.

One person in the home, located near Route 47 and Old Oaks Road, died, as did one person in the plane, a spokesman for the FAA said. The home is not far from Aurora Municipal Airport.
