SUGAR LAND (September 21, 2018)– Wednesday afternoon a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) plane crashed at the Sugar Land Regional Airport.
Three agents were on a pilot training mission in a government-owned single-engine Cessna. They were approaching the airport when they began to experience technical difficulties. An investigator states that the pilot reported engine problems before the crash.
Due to the mechanical issues the pilot did his best to land the plane on the road without hitting any houses. The plane hit a power line and crashed into several vehicles. After the crash, the plane was leaking fuel, but didn’t catch fire.
No drivers from the vehicles were injured. However, one pilot was taken to the hospital for an examination and later released, while the other two were uninjured. CenterPoint Energy restored electricity for the neighborhood as a result of the downed lines.
