Hallsville — 4 Victims Killed in Harrison County Plane Crash

Posted on Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 at 12:28 am    

On Saturday, March 9, 2019, four people were killed in a plane accident that happened in a wooded area in Harrison County, Texas.

According to initial reports, a Cessna 337C plane was flying from Dallas to New Orleans when it flew into severe weather. As a result, the plane nosedived and crashed in the area of FM 968 and FM 450, just south of the city of Hallsville. All four people inside the plane were killed: the 51-year-old pilot William Robert Kendrick, his 47-year-old wife Rebecca Marsh Kendrick, his 27-year-old daughter Kaycee Ann Kendrick, and Kaycee’s 25-year-old boyfriend Coty Ray Shrum.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is still investigating this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, they are not the only ones whose lives are taken away by a plane accident. It is noted that airplane and helicopter crashes are significantly a lot more dangerous and devastating than other vehicular accidents simply because of the extreme heights and speeds involved with them. Serious physical injuries and emotional and psychological damage are the expected outcomes of an aviation accident.

Some of the common causes of aviation accidents are air traffic controller error, negligence by the airline, airplane or helicopter pilot error, pilot intoxication, and helicopter or airplane defects and malfunction.

Aside from the devastating nature of aviation accidents, cases involving them are substantially complex, and as a result, a trusted attorney is needed to help the victim and their family. So, if you’re a victim of an aviation accident, or you knows someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help. Aviation accident lawyers are more than willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.
