Two separate plane crashes within minutes in Brown County

Two small planes crashed within three minutes of each other in Brown County on the evening of August 4.
According to the Ohio Highway Patrol, both had refueled their airplanes and taken off from the Brown County airport and reported engine trouble before crashing.
The first crash happened at 8:04 p.m. when a 1973 Cessna piloted by Timothy Howser, 46, of Batavia crashed into a field near Fryer Road in Russellville.

The Federal Aviation Administration will be on the scene August 5 to investigate, according to FAA spokesperson Tony Molinario.
He said that investigating fuel sources and quality is standard procedure in a crash investigation where engine trouble is reported.
Molinaro said that it would take a few weeks for a final determination of the reason for the two crashes, and that no other information would be available until the final report.
The highway patrol was assisted following both crashes by the Russellville Police and Fire Departments, Mount Orab Police and Fire Departments and the Brown County Emergency Management Agency.
