Plane crashes into woods with 2 critical in Westwood, Massachusetts, USA
A small plane with two men aboard crashed Saturday in Massachusetts, sending both to the hospital.
The Piper PA-24 aircraft crashed in the woods in Westwood at about 3:30 p.m., WFXT-TV reports.
The pilot, a 65-year-old man from Newton, was taken to a Boston hospital by medical helicopter. His passenger, a 77-year-old man from Norwood, was taken to a local hospital by ambulance and later flown to a Boston hospital. Their names were not released.
Authorities said both suffered critical injuries, WFXT said.
The Federal Aviation Administration is heading to the scene to investigate.
The plane was behaving erratically and flying low before it crashed while appearing to be heading for the nearby Norwood Airport, witnesses told the station.
“It just looked like it wasn’t flying well, it was kind of wobbly and it looked like the propeller wasn’t turning very well … and a few seconds later we heard the crash,” Ded Murphy said.
