At 22:38 eastern time, a Beech BE-23-24 crashed during a forced landing near Kingston, killing the pilot and two passengers and leaving a third passenger seriously injured. The pilot had the airplanes fuel tanks filled to the tabs before the first leg of his flight that evening, but expressed surprise at how little fuel it took. The pilot then flew a 0.9-hour flight and, on the return leg, reported a loss of engine power. The pilot tried to land on a four-lane highway but crashed heading north onto the southbound lanes. An examination of the wreckage showed only trace amounts of fuel in the fuel system.
