A group of environmental scientists on their way to inspect a massive explosion at a Bedford, Ohio metal manufacturing plant have all been killed after their plane crashed en route.
Four scientists and the pilot of the plane, who all worked at the Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health, are dead after the twin-engine plane crashed shortly after take off from Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The Daily Mail reports that the group specialised in environmental data collection and incident management, with a specific focus on industrial toxicology and hygiene.
The CTEH is a firm that consults with businesses, communities and governments on current and potential environmental threats.
The crash may have been caused by high winds and thunderstorms in the area at the time of take off, according to reports.
Dr. Paul Nony, senior vice president of CTEH, told the Daily Mail, “We are incredibly saddened to report the loss of our Little Rock colleagues. We ask everyone to keep the families of those lost and the entire CTEH team in their thoughts and prayers.”
The explosion at the metal planet killed one person died and injured at least 13. The plant is located just about 70 miles northwest of East Palestine, where the toxic train derailment occurred on February 3.
