Fatal Air Crash In Paulding County

A fatal plane crash in rural Pauld­ing County…

Emer­gency respon­ders were called to a field near County Road 60 and County Road 137 around 6 last evening. That’s about two miles north of Grover Hill and just a cou­ple miles east of Wayne Trace High School where a small plane report­edly crashed into a field.

Wit­nesses say the plane was on fire before it crashed. Debris is report­edly scat­tered in an area about 100 yards by 100 yards in a field directly across the road from a house. It’s believed the plane may have been en route to Toledo from Fort Wayne, but details are still sketchy. No word yet on just how many peo­ple were on board the plane, and no names have been released.

The Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Admin­is­tra­tion arrived around 11 last night, and the National Trans­porta­tion Safety Board is expected to arrive today.
