(KSL News) Improper clearance is being blamed for an August plane crash that killed three men near Monticello.
A report from the National Transportation Safety Board says the plane was flying low at the time of the crash, and that the pilot did not maintain a proper distance from terrain while maneuvering. The wing of the plane then clipped a mountain, causing the plane to go down.
Blanding City Council members Eric Johnson and Brian Bayles, and former councilman Kim Acton were killed in the crash.
