The National Transportation Safety Board has released a new report about the small plane that crashed in North Salem last November killing two Danbury restaurant owners.
The information issued this week included a toxicology report which determined that pilot Val Horsa and passenger Taew Robinson tested negative for the presence of volatiles or drugs for all of the submitted samples. The NTSB concluded that the accident was a result of loss of control in flight, not mechanical deficiencies.
The plane was en route to Danbury Municipal Airport when it crashed into a reservoir less than 10 miles away. 90-percent of the wreckage was recovered , with the landing gear was in the up/locked position.
The South Salem couple owned Bangkok Restaurant.
