Small plane crashes on Hilo airport property, 2 critically injured

"I was in the garage and all I heard was the twin engine plane going over," says eyewitness, Teresa Ahyo, "All of a sudden, I heard this loud backfire...and then like 5 - 6 seconds later, I heard the crash. And when I came out the plane was down in the grass."

A small plane, reportedly a single-engine Cessna 172, crashed on Hilo International Airport property not long after taking off. The plane crash occured around 2 p.m., and three people were onboard including the pilot. Two of the people were critically injured and taken to Queen's Medical Center, and the third was in stable condition and taken to Hilo Medical Center for treatment.
