Citation CJ2 Down In Southern Indiana

Three On Board Fatally Injured In The Accident

A Cessna Citation CJ2 went down last Friday shortly after takeoff from Clark County Airport (KVJY) in Sellersburg, IN resulting in the fatal injury of the three people on board.

According to a new release from the Indiana State Police, shortly before 11:30 Friday morning, police agencies in Clark County were alerted by residents in the area of 2627 Crone Road, near Borden, of a possible plane crash in a wooded area nearby. Emergency Responders arrived at the rural wooded area to find a debris field from the reported crash.

After it was determined there were no survivors at the crash site it was secured by police officers.

The Clark County Airport located in Sellersburg, IN, confirmed a flight left their airport at 11:24 am, enroute to Chicago, IL, with allegedly three people aboard the flight, (including the pilot).

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that those fatally injured have been identified as Louisville area architect Wayne Estopinal, TEG Architects vice president Sandra Holland Johnson and pilot Andrew Davis. The wreckage of the aircraft was described as "terribly fragmented" by Chris Ferraraccio, co-owner of the aircraft recovery company contracted to clear the roughly 300-yard debris field.

According to the report, the plane had been airborne for about six minutes before it initiated a return to KVJY. The pilot apparently did not declare an emergency. A transcript of the radio traffic between the airplane and air traffic controllers depict a normal takeoff, but when a controller based in Louisville tried to contact the airplane a few minutes later, there was no response.

FAA records show the plane as being registered to Estoair LLC in Jeffersonville, IN.
