Plane Crash In Owyhee County

plane crash graphic (2)Rescue personnel are in the process of reaching a Cessna airplane that crashed in Owyhee County at about midnight Saturday night.The plane, a 1966 Cessna 172, took off from Sacramento, Calif., for Mountain Home earlier Saturday.  After the plane crashed, one of the three passengers onboard used a cell phone to call 9-1-1, and reached the Owyhee County Sheriff’s Office early Sunday morning. LifeFlight helicopters searched early Sunday, but had difficulty seeing the terrain as it was still dark.
The Civil Air Patrol was preparing to start searching at daybreak Sunday. At that time, a LifeFlight helicopter spotted the wreckage. It could not land close enough to pick up the passengers because of the terrain.  The three passengers onboard are Brian Brown, Jan Brown, and Heather. Heather’s last name and age, as well as the ages of Brian and Jan, weren’t known yet Sunday morning. The passenger who used the cell phone to call 9-1-1 said one of them had minor head and laceration injuries, and the two others suffered back and neck injuries.
