Four Texans Survive Crash of Single-Engine Plane After Takeoff
On Sunday, a single-engine plane took off at Hereford Municipal Airport and crashed around 11:40 .a.m.
All four people on board, including the pilot, 30-year-old Andrea Reinert, survived the crash, but the plane itself, a Piper PA-32-30, was completely destroyed.
Rienert was last reported in critical condition at Covenant hospital in Lubbock. The three passengers have been identified as 31-year-old Heath Reinert, also in critical condition at Covenant, 21-year-old Keaton Buxton, being treated at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, and Jason Messer of Hereford.
It’s reported that one passenger believes that weight may have been a factor in the accident. The National Transportation Safety Board is said to be conducting an official investigation.
