Environmental Workers En Route to Ohio Killed in Plane Crash Near Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport

Published on

Five employees of an Arkansas environmental center perished in the aftermath of an explosion at an Ohio metal mill.

Wednesday, five workers of The Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health perished in an aircraft accident shortly after takeoff from Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The environmental workers were headed to Bedford, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, to respond to the explosion at the I Schumann & Co. paint and metal business.

According to The Washington Post, their twin-engine turboprop jet crashed a mile from the airport, near a 3M industrial site.

According to initial reports, there were no survivors in the accident.

The victims have not been identified officially.

According to the Post, all five passengers, including the pilot, were CTEH workers. In a statement, a CTEH executive lamented the loss of his colleagues.

“We are incredibly saddened to report the loss of our Little Rock colleagues,” senior vice president Dr. Paul Nony said in a statement provided to The Daily Wire.

“We ask everyone to keep the families of those lost and the entire CTEH team in their thoughts and prayers.”

The airport recorded strong wind gusts around the time of the disaster.

The explosion at the Bedford facility resulted in the death of one employee and the hospitalization of twelve others, according to The New York Times.

As a result of the explosion, which undoubtedly had environmental repercussions, thick smoke billowed into the air.

Little Rock’s KARK-TV reports that the National Transportation Safety Board will launch an inquiry after the plane disaster.

A preliminary result is due within 15 days, stated the station.
