Three DEA Agents Survive Cessna Crash in Texas

Power lines and cars damaged in the accident.

Three Drug Enforcement Agency agents survived the crash of their Cessna 206 north of Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR) near Houston, Texas, according to the Aviation Safety Network. The agents were headed to Sugar Land as part of a training mission when the airplane experienced mechanical difficulties, forcing an emergency landing near Fort Bend County southwest of Sugar Land. During the landing, the Cessna also struck a number of cars on the ground as well as powerlines, all again luckily with no injuries.

One DEA agent was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while the other two walked away from the aircraft according to ABC 13. The NTSB, FAA, and Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the accident.
