The Texas Highway Patrol provided us with this preliminary report regarding the plane crash in Burnet Sunday afternoon:
On December 17th, 2023 at approximately 2:14PM, a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper responded to an airplane crash on US 281 S of Delaware Springs Rd. in Burnet. The Aircraft had taken off from the Burnet airport before striking a power line along 281 and crashing in the southbound lanes of US 281. The aircraft struck a passenger car during the crash. The driver of the vehicle was transported to a medical facility and released shortly after, but the pilot and passenger were transported to a medical facility in Austin with burn injuries.
The FAA was notified and the aircraft was towed from the highway to the Burnet airport. Though DPS Troopers were called to the scene to help secure the site, the public should know the formal investigation will be handled by the federal government from here on out.
