Crash happened at Spruce Creek Country Club, FAA says

PORT ORANGE, Fla. – A small plane carrying two people crashed at a golf course in Port Orange on Thursday after it stalled, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

The plane — a single-engine Piper PA-46 Malibu — crashed onto the Spruce Creek Country Club golf course southwest of the Spruce County Airport around 12 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration said in a release.

Port Orange officials said that the plane went off the runway and into some trees during takeoff. Several 911 callers reported the plane went down at the end of the runway.

“There are other people here that are pulling stuff out of the plane. I don’t know how many people are on board,” one caller said.

According to a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a husband and wife were in the plane and were returning to their home in Ohio when the aircraft stalled out.

The plane crashed into a tree, which ripped the stabilizers and propellers off the aircraft, according to the report.

Body-worn camera video released Friday shows a deputy walking up to the crashed plane. A woman walking with the deputy is heard saying, “There’s a woman in there, she has apparently hip injuries.”

A man is seen talking to someone inside the plane and asking about their condition.

The husband fractured his shin bone and the wife suffered a spinal injury in the crash, deputies said.
