LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - All four men on board a plane that crashed on a golf course are listed in critical condition.
A spokesperson for University Hospital said as of 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, the hospital has four patients from the plane crash and all are critical.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A witness said the small plane that crashed on a golf course was spinning out of control before it went down.
According to MetroSafe, four people were rushed to the hospital—the pilot of the plane and three passengers—after the plane crashed on Seneca Golf Course on Pee Wee Reese Road around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police said the men were conscious and they were transported to University of Louisville Hospital with unknown injuries. It was unclear at first whether the plane was taking off from Bowman Field or trying to land.
Gregory Frederick, Chief of the Louisville Fire Department, talked to the owner of the plane who indicated the plane was perhaps not trying to take off or land. "They were possibly doing touch and goes," Frederick said. "They were flying the aircraft for approximately an hour before the crash happened."
The tail number of the plane—as seen from Air 3 Tuesday night—is N118JD. According to FAA records, the plane is a fixed-wing single-engine Cessna and is registered to Cardinal Wings Aviation, LLC.
The extent of the four men's injuries is still not known this morning.
Seneca Golf Course is open for play. The FAA and NTSB will be investigating the wreckage Wednesday.
