Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 9:11am

A fatal plane crash happened yesterday when the pilot tried landing on a private airstrip in Groesbeck County just off of FM 937. Today, authorities released the pilot’s identity.

Witnesses say the man, Darrell Gene Sorensen, was trying to touch down when his small, utralight-style plane took a sudden turn for a heavily-wooded area nearby.

Nobody else was on the plane and no bystanders were hurt. The FAA, as standard procedure, is investigating the accident.

Sorensen was 69-years old.
