A video of Wednesday’s small plane crash in Roy seems to be going viral. Four people lost their lives in the plane crash that occurred merely a few minutes of it taking off. The plane crashed onto the median of Interstate 15.
The Department of Public Safety has identified the victims as 48-year old Layne Clarke and his 45-year old Diana Clarke. The other two victims included 45-year old Perry Huffaker and his 42-year old wife Sarah Huffaker. It has now been confirmed that Perry Huffaker was Ogden City’s Parks Director and has been credited of doing wonderful task for the city.
Meanwhile a video of the incident shot by a passer-by Sam Burke is going viral. The video shows the burning wreckage of the small aircraft that went down at about 12:40 p.m. in the median of I-15, in Roy near the Riverdale Road exit. The video has been shot by Sam Burke, a resident of Harrisville, Utah.
Sam Burke says that his building is close to the crash site. Reports suggest that the four had taken off in a small aircraft from Ogden-Hinckley Airport, which is used primarily by small airplanes.
KUTV quoted the dialogue that took place between the pilot and the tower. “Ogden tower, this is 6-0 Whiskey Bravo on runway 1-7. Ready for takeoff,” the pilot radioed to the tower. “I’d like to alter my plans and head out west, northwest to get above these clouds. Zero 2 Bravo.” The controller said, “Still need you to you to make a left downwind departure now…And runway 1-7 cleared for takeoff.” The pilot responded, “Alright, 1-7 cleared for takeoff, left downwind at Zero 2 Bravo”. Merely a few minutes later, the pilot radioed again saying, “Hey. I’m going down,” said the pilot. Zero Whiskey Bravo. Zero-Whiskey…” “I just heard him go down…He just hit the highway there. Oh s— the air controller said”
