Early this morning a small twin-engine plane reported engine problems and crashed into a neighborhood near Midway Airport in Chicago. The pilot of the plane radioed into Midway that he was experiencing engine problems on his way to Ohio State University Airport when he decided to turn around. Shortly after, the plane crashed into an elderly folk’s home on South Knox Avenue. Unfortunately, the pilot was found dead on the scene. The elderly couple, however, was not injured. Currently, the cause of the crash is unknown. Preliminary reports may be released this week, but a full report may not be available for six months to a year, according to an air safety investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board.
