Dog Survives Indiana Plane Crash That Kills 3 People and Another Dog

One dog amazingly survived a small plane crash in southern Indiana that claimed the lives of three people and another dog.

State police led by Sgt. Stephen Wheeles say the single-engine Cessna plane crashed in a wooded area around Oldenburg, Indiana at about 9 p.m. Saturday.

The aircraft was traveling from Kansas City, Missouri to Frederick, Maryland. Wheeles said the plane had taken off from an airport outside Columbus, Indiana.

Authorities believe the aircraft caught fire after it crashed.

Oldenburg is around 40 miles northwest of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Authorities have yet to release the identities of the crash victims as their families have yet to be notified of the unfortunate incident. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board are still investigating the incident.

It is not clear how the dog survived the crash while the other canine onboard died. The surviving dog was found at a nearby residence after the crash. The dog was brought immediately to a veterinarian and treated for its injuries.

The authorities have yet to share how the dog is doing after the crash and after being seen by a veterinarian.
