Firm Partner Benny Agosto, Jr. is currently investigating an airplane crash in Navasota, Texas, that resulted in the death of the pilot, the instructor, and two children. The two children left their home Sunday morning on February 28, 2016, with their mother’s boyfriend, who owned and piloted the plane that day. The man’s instructor was also on the plane when it took off that morning. The man had just purchased the plane, a model Cirrus SR-20. Reports state that the crashed plane was discovered approximately an hour after it took off by another plane in flight. The National Transportation Safety Board is currently conducting its investigation.
This is the second airplane crash Mr. Agosto is investigating this month. Mr. Agosto currently represents the family of a man who was killed in airplane crash that occurred on February 1, 2016, in Arcola, Texas. The deceased, Mr. Johnny Johnson, was a flight instructor instructing a student in a model Tecnam P92 Echo Super single-engine, two-seater plane. The plane had just taken off, when something went wrong and caused the plane to veer out of control. The plane violently hit the ground and burst into flames. Mr. Johnson died in the wreckage, and the student was able to crawl out and save himself. The whole sequence of events that transpired and ultimately ended in a crash, has been terrifying and frightening for Mr. Johnson’s family.
