Fatal Plane Crash Near Interstate 242

A tragic plane crash occurred near Interstate Highway 242 in Concord, resulting in road closures that were expected to last several hours, possibly into the morning commute. The incident took place at 10:30 a.m. when a single-engine Vans RV6 plane crash-landed at the intersection of Concord Avenue and Diamond Boulevard. This prompted authorities to close Concord Avenue from Contra Costa Boulevard to Meridian Park Lane, as well as eastbound Chilpancingo Parkway from Contra Costa Boulevard to the affected area. Regrettably, there was one fatality in the crash, identified as the pilot, who was the sole occupant of the aircraft. The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District confirmed their presence at the scene shortly after the crash was reported. The crash's initial report came from Buchanan Field Airport at 10:30 a.m. Concord Avenue was closed in both directions from Contra Costa Boulevard to John Glenn Drive, while Diamond Boulevard was closed from Burnett Avenue to Concord Avenue. Authorities urged the public to use alternate routes due to the extended closures, with a warning that the morning commute might be affected. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) were conducting an investigation into the incident. The aircraft, a Vans RV6, is a two-seat, single-engine homebuilt airplane sold in kit form. Witnesses at the scene noted the pilot's experience and familiarity with the airplane. The pilot's identity will be released once their next of kin has been notified. At 2 p.m. on Tuesday, an NTSB investigator was on the way to document the scene and examine the aircraft. The NTSB also appealed to witnesses with relevant footage or information to contact them at witness@ntsb.gov.
