“As of right now, we can confirm there is one fatality,” Daniel Chewning, Sandy Bottom Fire Department Fire Chief. “We also confirm that we’re still in a holding pattern until federal agencies have to come in and investigate—The FAA AND NTSB. We’re in a holding pattern until they arrive sometime in the morning. The scene will remain secure by a mix of the fire department and the sheriff’s office.”

The incident happened around 8:30 pm local time. No one else was on the plane at the time of the crash.

“At approximately 8:30 this evening we were alerted to a plane crash out here at the Kinston Drag Strip,” said Chewning. “We do have trucks on standby any time they are racing so I had an apparatus here that was quick to respond to the scene.

“They were racing, the only thing we know as of now, is that a plane came into view and crashed into the drag strip.”
