CRESSKILL, N.J. -- The National Transportation Safety Board said the cause of a small plane crash Sept. 3 in Cresskill was caused by a loss of engine power, NorthJersey.com reported.
The NTSB report doesn’t say what the cause of the power failure was, according to the story.
Both the pilot and a passenger were seriously injured in the crash, according to NorthJersey.com.
The pilot reportedly told NTSB investigators he was flying 2,000 feet above the river when the engine lost power, the story said. Investigators said he told them he bypassed a larger field with children playing on it and crash-landed into a line of trees on Regan Field, the story said.
