A recent plane crash accident near Reno claimed the life of one man, and critically injured another. The plane went down with just those two people aboard a little ways away from Truckee, California. The plane, a Piper PA-46 Malibu, was found crashed near the Nevada-California border. The plane was supposed to have crashed around 11 o’clock in the morning, and was first seen just before noon by a helicopter flown by the CHP. The deceased was already dead at the scene by the time rescue vehicles arrived. Rescue personal took the other man, in critical condition, back out to better transportation via a Sno-Cat, a process which took over than an hour’s time.
