Gearhart Plane Crash

I covered the Minnesota Hawker crash and people started busting my chops over that. The heat over that one is still not over but now I came across another crash and this time its a single engine place that fell into a a house on a foggy Oregon coast.

Two people who were in the place were killed, and two children who happened to be in the house also paid it with their lives. Another child in the house was reported missing.

Unfortunately a family was using the home as a vacation rental. (Turned out quite a vacation for them). One mom and two children were flown to Portland for treatment for burns. Luckily, two people went out for a walk.

About how the accident happened, the weather was misty and clouds slung low. The plane apparently hit a tree and then crashed into the house.
