Plane Crash Trial Underway

A trial is underway stemming from the crash of a plane during a Deaf Pilots Association event in Edgartown, Massachusetts. The three people on board the plane sued Cessna, accusing the aircraft manufacturer of faulty equipment. The Jeff Willoughby and his daughter, agreed to a settlement Friday. But the pilot, Alec Naiman, did not accept an offer from Cessna. The trial has been underway for three weeks and may go to the jury by the end of this week. The crash took place in 2005 at the Edgartown-Katama Airpark, leaving all three with serious injuries and Naiman a paraplegic.
