A plane crash in Summerville that left one person dead Tuesday evening is under investigation, according to a press release from the Union County Sheriff’s Office, and the National Transportation Safety Board is leading the investigation.

The  Union County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene about 7:43 p.m. Tuesday. The National Transportation Safety Board and Union County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incident along with the Union County District Attorney’s Office and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Terry Williams, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board told The Observer Wednesday afternoon the Titan II airplane, which crashed, was an “experimental aircraft.”

Williams said the National Transportation Safety Board investigator arrived on scene midday Wednesday, and has done a preliminary review of the aircraft and the engine. Three witnesses have also been identified and will be interviewed by the agency, he said.

“Right now we are in the very early stages of the investigation,” Williams said, adding that the agency will look into everything from the weather, to the aircraft, to the individual itself in its investigation.

The  Union County Sheriff’s Office press release initially called it a "single occupant, fatality plane crash."

The name of the deceased individual has not yet been released.
