DPS: Pilot killed in crop duster crash near Expressway

April 9, 2019 GMT

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the pilot of a small crop duster died Tuesday morning when his plane crashed into a field near Expressway 77 and Orphanage Road.

The accident is halfway between Combes and Sebastian. The name of the pilot has not been released.

A DPS Trooper at the scene says the agency is urging motorists to avoid the area because the chemicals in the plane scattered when it crashed.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
