Fatal crash at Porter County Regional Airport

Back To Front Page


The Federal Aviation Administration was en route to the Porter County Regional Airport late this morning to investigate a fatal airplane crash, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police was reporting just before deadline.

The crash occurred at 10:46 a.m. and the PCSP was able to confirm one fatality “at this time.”

Responding to the scene were the Washington Township and Morgan Township fire departments, and the PCSP said that a flight restriction was in place at the airport.

No further information was available, but--after a photograph of the crash scene surfaced on social media, prior to the notification of the victim’s family--the PCSP was asking the media to refrain from publishing such photos.
