  • NTSB releases new Earnhardt plane crash info

    The National Transportation Safety Board released new photos and indicated in investigative documents released Thursday that there were no issues with the engines nor other parts of the Cessna that crashed on landing with Dale Earnhardt Jr., his wife, his daughter and his dog aboard Aug. 15 in Elizabethton, Tenn.

    Earnhardt Jr. was holding his 16-month-old daughter when his plane bounced twice on the runway before skidding and eventually catching fire. One of his pilots kicked open the main cabin door enough for everyone to escape and a former member of the U.S. Air Force who witnessed the crash rushed to Earnhardt’s aid when seeing him on the ground.
