Three people killed in Nemacolin plane crash

A third man has died from injuries sustained in a small plane crash at Nemacolin on Friday afternoon.

Shortly after the plane took off from the resort's private airstrip, one of the doors malfunctioned, came off, and hit the plane's wing, causing the crash about a half mile away.

All three men were from Maryland. Two died in the crash, while the third died in the hospital Sunday morning. Because of the fatalities, the FAA will investigate and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause.

The coroner, police, and a Nemacolin spokeswoman have not commented further at this time, although Nemacolin did release a statement.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the men.
