Whitman County Sheriff's Office
MEDIA RELEASE
September 15, 2021

Whitman County Sheriff’s Office Responds to The Scene of a Single Engine Plane Crash near Palouse, Washington.

COLFAX, Washington – The Whitman County Sheriff’s Office and local emergency crews from the Palouse area responded to a report of a single-engine plane crash around 1100 am on Wednesday Morning.  

The crash occurred at a private airstrip near Ringo Road just outside of Palouse, Washington.  

Initial reports indicate the student pilot, accompanied by his flight instructor, attempted to make a landing when the plane made a hard touchdown causing the landing gear to malfunction.  As a result the plane flipped and came to rest on its top.  

Both passengers in the plane were transported to area hospitals due to injuries sustained during the landing. The injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board have been notified and will be conducting a joint investigation into the cause of this accident.
