Sunday in New York, a fatal plane crash took the life of two young kids. One killed in theplane crash was a Colgate University student who was behind the wheel. Furthermore, 18-year-old, Cathryn “Carey” Depuy was flying the single-engine Cessna 150 plane when it crashed.
Depuy had received her pilot license in October 2013, and per the FAA rules, she was only allowed to fly with an instructor on board until she received a solo endorsement. On the other hand, even with a solo endorsement on her record, Depuy would’ve still not been allowed to fly with a passenger.
The passenger of the plane was classmate, 18-year-old, Ryan Adams of Connecticut. Both Depuy and Adams rented the small plane from Hamilton Municipal Airport. Witnesses that saw the plane crash told authorities it came out of the air and crash into a wooded area. The plane crash is still under investigation but it is believed that the plane may have hit a tree before it went down.
