Federal investigators have spent time at the scene of a small plane crash in southern Kentucky that injured two men.
WLEX-TV in Lexington reported that the Federal Aviation Administration arrived in Pulaski County on Tuesday morning and spent the day trying to determine why the aircraft went down. The plane crashed Monday about a quarter of a mile from where it took off near Bronston.
The FAA took pictures, examined the wreckage, and walked around the large field where the plane went down. A spokesman for the FAA says the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause within a year.
The pilot, 54-year-old Gary McGothlin of Lexington, was in fair condition at the University of Kentucky Hospital. The passenger, 55-year-old Charles Jackson of Winchester, has been discharged.
