Witness saw plane crash into Connecticut houses upside-down


Federal officials investigating the deadly crash of an airplane into two Connecticut homes say a witness reported seeing the plane traveling upside-down as it sped nose-first toward the ground. The preliminary report issued Tuesday by the National Transportation Safety Board does not indicate a possible cause for the Aug. 9 crash that killed four people. The crash of the 10-seat airplane killed the two people on the plane and two girls inside one of the houses struck in East Haven, Conn. A witness driving along Interstate 95 told investigators he saw the plane traveling at a high rate of speed as it descended near Tweed-New Haven Airport.
