Location: West Jordan, UT
Accident Number: WPR20LA238
Date & Time: 07/25/2020, 1345 MDT
Registration: N7677C
Aircraft: Piper PA32R
Injuries: 4 Fatal, 2 Serious, 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

On July 25, 2020, about 1345 mountain daylight time, a Piper PA-32-300R, N7677C, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near West Jordan, Utah. The pilot, two passengers, and one person on the ground received fatal injuries, two passengers received serious injuries, one passenger received minor injuries. The airplane was being operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.


A South Valley Regional Airport (U42) security camera recorded the accident airplane takeoff from runway 16, a 5862 ft long and 100 wide runway. The airplane appeared to become airborne abeam taxiway K2, about 3700 feet from the beginning of runway 16. See figure 1. The airplane remained in a shallow climb until the airplane was no longer visible in the security video. About 75 seconds after lifting off, a large plume of black smoke was visible in the distance south east. Figure 2 shows N7677C as it lifts off near taxiway K2.

Multiple witnesses reported they observed the airplane at a very low altitude, banking or "teetering" before it descended to the ground. Numerous first responders reported hearing a loud explosion followed by observing a house, garage and wreckage of the airplane engulfed in flames.


Examination of the accident site by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the airplane came to rest in the backyard of a residential home about 1.5 miles southeast of U42. The fuselage came to rest on its left side, and all major structural components of the airplane were found within 40 ft of the main wreckage. A post-impact fire consumed portions of both wings and forward portion of the fuselage.


The airplane was recovered to a secure facility for further examination.

Mary Quintana, 72, died of burn injuries days after a small airplane crashed into her West Jordan, Utah, home. The plane's pilot, his 9-month-old daughter and another female passenger died in the crash. 

WEST JORDAN, Utah (KSTU/CNN) - Neighbors helped get a 72-year-old woman out of her Utah home when an airplane crashed into it, killing three people onboard and setting the house on fire. The woman later died from severe burn injuries.

Neighbor Autumn Allen, who is studying to become an EMT, described feeling “inspired” by 72-year-old Mary Quintana’s strength as she pulled her away from her burning West Jordan, Utah, home on Saturday.

Allen thought she saved Quintana’s life, but the woman died Monday morning from injuries she sustained when her house caught on fire after a small airplane crashed into it.

“I think it’s going to be hard for the flashbacks to stop for people around here,” Allen said. “I’m at peace because I know that she’s not in pain.”

The Piper PA-32R-300 Cherokee Lance, flown by 43-year-old Lee Wyckoff, crashed into Quintana’s home after leaving South Valley Regional Airport. Dozens of neighbors responded to the site, trying to save everyone from the massive flames.

Lee Wyckoff, his 9-month-old daughter Coral and another passenger, identified as 36-year-old Milda Shibonis, died in the crash. The pilot's wife, Rebecca Wyckoff, and a 2-year-old boy suffered critical injuries. Shibonis' 12-year-old daughter was treated at a hospital and released.

The Quintana family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time. So many people have come out to see the crash site, neighbors had to post signs at various entrances of the neighborhood, urging people to be respectful.

Mary Quintana, 72, died of burn injuries days after a small airplane crashed into her West Jordan, Utah, home. The plane's pilot, his 9-month-old daughter and another female passenger died in the crash.

“People should just understand that there’s a boundary,” Allen said. “People didn’t want to go see 9/11. They were running from it. They didn’t want to see it. Why would you want to see this?”

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.

Lee Wyckoff piloted a plane that crashed into a West Jordan neighborhood on Saturday, July 25, 2020. He died, as did two others. Three survived as of Sunday, July 26th.

Police on Sunday morning released the names of those involved in a Saturday afternoon plane crash in a West Jordan neighborhood that killed three and injured four others.

The pilot, 43-year-old Lee Wyckoff, and his 9-month-old daughter, Coral Wyckoff, were killed. Wife and mother Rebecca Wyckoff, 36, was in critical condition.

Milda Shibonis, 36, also died in the crash. Her daughter Veda Sheperd, 12, was treated Saturday night and released from the hospital. Cody Mitchell, 2, was in critical condition with burns on his legs and arms.

The crash damaged three houses, critically injuring a seventh victim, 72-year-old Mary Quintana.

The Piper PA-32R-300 Cherokee Lance crashed about 1:40 p.m. Saturday in a neighborhood near 8800 South and 4000 West.

It remained unclear Sunday morning why the plane went down, but on Saturday evening, West Jordan police spokesperson Jennifer Worthen said the crash happened shortly after taking off from nearby South Valley Regional Airport.
The Federal Aviation Administration began its investigation Saturday afternoon. The National Transportation Safety Board also will investigate the crash.





WEST JORDAN, Utah — Cindy Bond has lived in her West Jordan neighborhood for more than 30 years and never expected to receive the call she did on Saturday.

She was out shopping when she found out her son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren were in their home when a plane leaving South Valley Regional Airport crashed into their neighbor's house around 1:30 p.m.

"I was shaking so hard, I could hardly get home," she said. "My other son was driving — thank heavens, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to.”

Her family members who were home at the time didn't know what happened when they heard the noise.

“They felt the house shake, they felt a big boom and they went outside to see," Bond said. "'Oh my gosh, is it another earthquake? I don’t know what it is,' and they got out there and found out that it was a plane crash.”

Her son jumped into action, helping in any way that he could.

“My son tried to put out some of the fire with the hose, but that wouldn’t do it because it was sparking and everything," she said.

He wasn’t the only one who rushed to save the people injured in the crash. In such a close-knit community, dozens of neighbors jumped in, trying to save everyone from the massive flames.

As they wait for answers, Bond says she’ll continue to do what she’s done for the last 30 years: support her neighbors and help those who are dealing with this tragic accident.

“Just really upset that that happened so close and that so many people got hurt. It’s just really bad,” Bond said.

Larry Jones saw a woman standing on her balcony — on fire — and rushed to help rescue her.

"It was just engulfed in flames. It was just done," Jones said. “The lady that lived in the house, you heard her screaming.”

The woman was taken to hospital and is in critical condition. FOX 13 spoke to her brother, Joe Murillo Jr.

"It’s terrible. It’s terrible," he said. "I lost my mom and dad, and that’s the only sister I've got. I hope I don’t lose her.”

During the chaos of the fire, some people say it took a minute before they realized what caused it.

“I turned to the right noticed there was a plane," Jones said. "I hadn’t even noticed the plane.”

The things bystanders saw when they jumped into action are sticking with them.

“What I couldn’t get out of my head was the view of the baby,” Adrian Ramirez said.

A 9-month-old girl was on the plane and died in the crash, and a 2-year-old boy also onboard is in the hospital in stable condition.

Ramirez gave one of the children CPR before beginning to help douse the flames on the plane. He also helped pull out the pilot, who later died from his injuries.

"I’d like to see them and see who made it out, just to see them," Ramirez said.

West Jordan • Alyssa Cigarroa is accustomed to hearing planes fly over her house, just a few miles away from the South Valley Regional Airport. So, when she heard one Saturday afternoon, she didn’t think anything of it.

Then came the loud crash, a boom so great it shook her whole West Jordan home. Cigarroa thought it was an earthquake, but a look out through the back yard revealed thick black smoke and flames. She ran toward it, first-aid kit in hand.

When she got there, much of the neighborhood had already arrived, trying to help. Cigarroa remembers the eerie “high-pitched screams” of the victims and all the smoke.

The Piper PA-32R-300 Cherokee Lance crashed around 1:40 p.m. in a neighborhood near 8800 South and 4000 West. Six people were onboard, and police reported that three died.

The crash damaged three houses, critically injuring one elderly homeowner.

West Jordan police spokesperson J.C. Holt said the male pilot died in addition to a woman and a 9-month-old. Another woman who was on the plane was in critical condition, and a 2-year-old boy was stable Saturday evening. A 12-year-old female passenger was injured in the crash and was treated and released from the hospital.

It’s unclear why the plane crashed, but another police spokesperson, Jennifer Worthen, said it happened shortly after taking off from South Valley Regional Airport.

Veronica Taylor said she was at a nearby park when she saw a plane that “was super low, and it was so loud.” She pointed it out to her son.

Taylor said she continued to watch and thought to herself that the plane needed to gain some altitude. It was much too low.

“Then, all of a sudden, it disappeared from my view,” and Taylor said she saw a “big flame and a big plume of smoke” as it crashed.

She said that before the plane crashed, she noticed it making a noise that sounded to her like the engine was struggling.

The Federal Aviation Administration was at the scene beginning its investigation Saturday afternoon, Worthen said. It and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash.

Worthen said the community quickly came together to help the people on the plane and a person who was inside one of the homes.

Residents said the neighborhood was tight-knit, and it showed Saturday as dozens gathered in the streets in the crash aftermath, discussing what they’d seen and sharing information about a woman in one of the homes who’d been injured. Some set up lawn chairs in the shade as they waited.

Cigarroa said she doesn’t remember deciding to run toward the crash. She just did it, like an automatic “fight or flight” response.

“As soon as I saw what happened,” she said, “I just got my first-aid kit and went.”

When she got to the yard, she said she talked to a woman who’d been badly burned and had deep cuts on her legs and arms. She also saw two children, one she guessed was a toddler. The other, she thought, was a teenager.

Before paramedics arrived, the 21-year-old Cigarroa, who is studying to be a nurse, packed victims’ wounds with gauze to stop the bleeding. She did what she could to help when medics arrived.

Then, after ambulances had taken everyone away, and firefighters had put out the blaze, she went back home to try to process what she’d just seen.

UPDATE: The pilot, a woman, and a 9-month-old girl onboard the plane that crashed into a West Jordan neighborhood Saturday died in the incident, police confirmed Saturday evening.

Three other people onboard were injured: A woman is in critical condition, a 2-year-old boy is in stable condition, and another child was treated at a hospital and released, according to a series of tweets from the West Jordan Police Department.

An elderly woman inside the house struck by the plane also was injured and is in critical condition.


Officials are still notifying family members, and the names of those involved will likely be released Sunday, police said.

WEST JORDAN — Fire and medical crews are responding after a plane carrying six people crashed into a home at 8691 S. 3780 West shortly after 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

According to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman, an aircraft of unknown type and registration crashed into a residential backyard.

The crash resulted in “multiple injuries and possible casualties,” said West Jordan office Jennifer Worthen.

Several medical helicopters carried the injured to area hospitals, she said.

One house took the brunt of the damage and there was reportedly one person in the home when the crash occurred. That person’s condition was not available, Worthen said. Three houses sustained damage.

The plane took off from South Valley Regional Airport in West Jordan. The cause of the crash was unknown, a statement by the FFA said.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash. The tail numbers of the aircraft will be released once it is verified by investigators, according to a statement by Allen Kenitzer, of the FAA Office of Communications.

Jason Soriano, 13, who lives around the corner from the crash scene, said he was standing in his front yard and saw a plane flying “super low.”

“It was actually like rumbling, kind of. It was really low,” he said.

The next thing he saw was a black plume of smoke “and I saw the whole neighborhood come running out,” Soriano said.

West Jordan Mayor Dirk Burton said the crash occurred in an established neighborhood, with many of the houses owned by the original owners.

“So they know each other extremely well and they’re very close knit. So they were on top of it very quickly to go help out the residents that were affected,” Burton said.

Burton said neighbors attempted to enter the front door of the home that was most damaged but had to get in another way and help the owner out.

“I don’t know what her condition is,” Burton said, but he took it as a positive sign that she was able to leave the house.

WEST JORDAN — A single-engine plane carrying six people crashed into the backyard of a house shortly after 1:30 p.m. Saturday, resulting in the deaths of a 9-month-old infant, a woman and the man piloting the aircraft.

The injured passengers of the Piper PA-32R-300 Cherokee Lance include an adult female who is in critical condition, a 2-year-old child in stable condition and a 12-year-old child who was treated and released, according to West Jordan police.

The only person reported injured on the ground, a woman whose house at 8691 S. 3780 West was struck by the plane, is in critical condition, police said.

Joe Murillo, who identified himself to the Deseret News as the 72-year-old woman’s brother, said she was badly burned. She had lived in the home about 20 years, he said.

West Jordan police said the victim’s identities will be released once police are able to notify their next of kin.

Murillo said his sister’s house took the brunt of the crash. Police said three houses sustained damage.

Mayor Dirk Burton said neighbors rushed to the crash site to help their neighbors and help the woman escape her home.

On October 18, 2016, about 1020 central daylight time, a Stinson 108 airplane, N97634, was involved in an accident at Austin Executive Airport (EDC), Austin, Texas. The airplane sustained substantial damage. The private pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured. The airplane was operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, and no flight plan was filed.

A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector who responded to the accident reported that the pilot was flying the airplane from Zuehl Airport, near Marion, Texas, to EDC. The wind was initially recorded at 170° at 15 kts, with gusts to 17 kts; however, wind gusts increased to 21 kts. The pilot reported to the FAA inspector that he experienced difficulty controlling the airplane on the first attempted landing and he conducted a go around. The pilot stated that during the second approach, the wind sheared at altitude and caused control problems. When the airplane touched down the pilot applied the left brake and pulled completely aft on the flight control yoke. The airplane rolled left and the left wing struck the runway and the airplane nosed over. An outboard section of the left wing and aileron were bent.

The pilot was sent a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) accident report form to complete twice and the NTSB has not received a completed report as of the date this report was published.

The pilot said he was flying over his home's driveway with a passenger so a family member could take pictures as he flew over. He said he descended to an altitude he thought was above wires at the end of his driveway, which he estimated were 25 ft above the ground. As he tracked along the driveway he added full power to climb when he was about 500 ft from the wires, but the powered parachute climbed slowly and the left wheel caught a wire. The aircraft descended into the ground, substantially bending and damaging the aircraft fuselage structure that included the parachute attachment point. The pilot indicated there were no mechanical anomalies with the aircraft that contributed to the accident.

OUTAGAMIE, Wisconsin (WFRV) – The Town of Freedom faced disruption of power after a pair of powered parachutes struck a power line and crashed in a farm field on Saturday night.
