You might want to keep an eye on the sky if you’re planning to park in Puyallup, because for the second time in a week, an airplane crashed in a parking lot.
Investigators says three people were on board Saturday when a plane lost power, and came crashing down in the 18700 block of 187th Street East in Puyallup.
All three were able to walk away from the crash without injury, first responders said. There were two student pilots and the flight instructor on the plane.
This was the second time this week that a plane has crashed in a parking lot in Pierce County. On Thursday, shoppers outside a Target in South Hill were shocked to see a Cessna slam directly onto a parked car. The car was empty, and no one was seriously hurt.
