NTSB releases factual report on Greenwood County plane crash

(Greenwood-AP) January 30, 2007 - The National Transportation Safety Board has released a factual report on a plane crash two years ago that killed a McCormick County family.

The agency has not yet determined the cause of the crash.

James Strong was flying a single-engine Piper plane that went down near Bradley in Greenwood County in January 2005. Strom, his wife, Robin, and their children, Bradley and Brittney were killed in the crash.

Strom was flying from McCormick to Greenwood when the plane came down.

The report states Strom had 150 hours of flying experience.

The report also states a witness said the engine sounded like it was "idling high" before the crash. The aircraft had a routine inspection just over a month before the crash.

A toxicology report found no alcohol or drugs in Strom's body.
