Three dead in Hermantown plane crash



quote:

A small plane crashed into the second story of a Hermantown home just before midnight Saturday night, killing three people on board. A couple sleeping in the house narrowly avoided injury.

Hermantown police said the Duluth International Airport notified them that a small airplane had left radar and was believed to have crashed. The last radar location was 1 to 1.5 miles south of the airport.

Police and fire departments from across the area responded and located the crash on the 5100 block of Arrowhead Road. The Cessna 172 airplane struck the second floor of a home before coming to rest in the backyard.

Authorities identified the victims of the crash Sunday afternoon. Alyssa Schmidt, 32, of St. Paul and her brother, Matthew Schmidt, 31, of Burnsville, were both passengers on the plane. The pilot, 31-year-old Tyler Fretland of Burnsville, was also killed.

Amazing they managed to high center a house that appears to have a big open area around it. Also amazing the occupants weren't hurt. Also, TIL there's a place called Hermantown.

Might have been trying to avoid the trees. Of course, at night, you can’t really see anything so you’re going to hit whatever you hit.

In it’s current condition that house would be the Taj Mahal of Bawcomville

Zillow says it is a touch smaller than 1000 sq. ft., and worth $255,600.

Looking at it in Google Earth, there isn’t any open areas besides the air field. Probably were attempting to use the roadway and got clipped on way onto the makeshift runway.

Highly unlikely they saw the house or open space around it until it was too late to do anything about it.

Hermantown has been a pop culture reference for a number of years now. You’d have to be a hockey fan though.

Maybe somebody at the airport switched the red and white bulbs on the VASI lights.
