Final report in Price County plane crash that killed six
PRICE COUNTY - We'll never know exactly why a plane broke up in the sky over Price County, killing six people.

The National Transportation Safety Board has released its final report on the accident over Catawba in July of 2017.
The board ruled the probable cause to be a loss of control of the plane, followed by the plane breaking up in the air.

The reasons that happened could not be determined from the information available.

Information in the report shows the plane was flying at 10 thousand feet, and dropped 1 thousand feet in a single minute before radar contact was lost.

There was no distress call.

Five of the people on board were from Illinois, including the pilot.

The sixth person killed was from California.
