AKRON, Ohio (WKBN) – As the investigation and cleanup continues at the site of a deadly plane crash in Akron, family members of those believed to be aboard the flight are coming to the crash scene.
WKBN 27 First News reporter James Santelli talked to the sister of Diane Smoot who drove to Akron from Indianapolis; she says the 50-year-old woman from Florida was on the flight. Smoot was an executive with a property management company in Boca Raton, Florida.
There were apparently other executives with that company on the plane. They were making stops in various cities around the country, looking at potential sites that might be developed.
The charter flight crashed just before 3 p.m. Tuesday along Mogadore Road in Akron. The plane was approaching the Akron Fulton Airport.
Nine people are believed to have been aboard the plane, though investigators have not confirmed that. No one on board the plane survived the crash.
