David Anderson Killed in Plane Accident at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Austin, Texas

Austin, TX — Austin police have identified David Anderson and his wife Malea Anderson as the victims in a plane crash in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, September 9, 2014. The accident took place as Anderson was attempting to land his Piper Aerostar at Austin-Bergstrom Internation Airport.

At this point, investigators have very little to go on as to what caused the accident. Authorities say Anderson took off from Dallas at 12:30 that afternoon, with the accident taking place at 1:26. Before the crash, there was no communication from the plane that anything had gone wrong.

Anderson and his wife were the only victims of the accident. The crashed set off a three-acre brush fire in a field just north of the airport.

Austin police, as well as the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are currently investigating the accident.

Scene of the Accident


Reports say that the investigation is being conducted by the FAA and NTSB, in addition to Austin police. That’s good. Those agencies are very good at what they do. However, one part of their investigations that always seems to be detrimental to victims and their families is how long it takes for them to be completed. Of course, we want them to be thorough, but look at it like this: If there was something wrong with the plane, if it was found that some crucial piece of circuitry had malfunctioned, the clock on the statute of limitations starts running the day the accident occurs, not the day the problem is discovered, or the investigation is concluded. And some of these investigation can take up to six months to complete. In cases like these, it’s always advisable to have a private investigation conducted. Because in a situation like this, time is always of the essence.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
