Preliminary investigation has determined that the pilot took off from the Robbinsville Airport shortly before the crash and that the pilot experienced some sort of mechanical failure while in flight, causing him to perform an emergency landing. This investigation is still on going and notification was made to the Federal Aviation Administration for further investigation.
Power lines and a transformer were struck during the crash landing which resulted in several fires. Power was secured and the fires extinguished. JCP&L will be on scene for an extended period restoring power.
