Two Dead in Plane Crash on Chinook Pass

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA COUNTY -- A man and a woman die in a plane crash that happened on Chinook Pass around 3:00 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Yakima Sheriff's Deputies say they saw a plane on the radar. It made a sharp turn then fell off the radar. They also say they heard a noise that sounded like a plane crashing.

They are not sure exactly what caused the crash, but it appears the plane hit the top of a tree at some point. Some men riding dirt bikes heard the crash and were able to help lead officials to the wreckage. There was a mile an a half of scattered debris.

The FAA will begin investigating this crash.
