Plane crash 10 miles South of Ellensburg

Kittitas County, WA - 04/19/2020 - Sheriff Deputies and medical units responded to the area of Rosa View and Arrowhead Drive, where a small plane was said to have gone down.

Deputies found a Cessna 172N Skyhawk flown by 39-year-old Josh Soracco and occupied by 46-year-old Kristina Ring and 21-year-old Jessie Ring, all of Yakima, attempted a low approach flyover of the runway and was unable to gain enough altitude to clear the ridge. The plane clipped the hillside and flipped. All occupants self-extricated and Kristina was later transported by KVFR to Yakima Memorial with back and neck pain. All other occupants had minor injuries. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were notified.
