Sen. Bernie Sanders was involved in plane crash early this evening; his condition has yet to be determined. There were two other unidentified victims who died in the crash, which happened as the private plane was taking off from the Burlington Airport. The plane was a Cessna 172 Skyhawk and while the crash is still under investigation, the intense weather seems to have played a factor.
It was about 6:15 p.m. when the plane was taking off and then crashed into a field, adjacent to the runway. Jeff Belden, a member of the local Federal Aviation Administration, said that, “ The control tower tells me the pilot managed to get off the ground but immediately after takeoff he radioed the tower, saying he was having problems controlling the aircraft.”
