Plane Crashes into the Ohio River
Date of News Release: 06/26/2008
(Campbellsburg, KY) - On June 25, 2008 the Kentucky State Police responded to 2033 Highland Avenue in Carrollton, Kentucky on reports of a plane in the Ohio River. Glen A. Moorman from Union, Kentucky piloted the plane, which reportedly experienced an unknown problem forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing in the Ohio River. The plane landed upright in the river, which allowed the pilot and two passengers, Arthur Bell and Justine D. Bell from Madison, Indiana to exit the plane prior to the aircraft being submerged. No injuries were reported for Moorman or Arthur Bell, a minor injury was reported for Justine Bell.
Kentucky State Police Trooper Kurt Buhts compiled the initial investigative report which was submitted the Transportation Cabinet Department of Aviation for further investigation. Assisting at the scene was the Coast Guard, Carroll County Rescue Squad, and Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.
