Rescue workers responded to a plane crash Monday, July 31 at Renton Municipal Airport.
At 9:08 a.m., multiple crews including Renton Regional Fire Authority, Skyway Fire (Fire District #20), Boeing Fire Department and King County Medic One were dispatched to Renton Municipal Airport for report of a small airplane crash, according to Renton Regional Fire Authority spokesperson Sara Morris.
According to a tweet from the Renton Regional Fire Authority, responding crews arrived on scene to find the single engine aircraft turned upside down beside the airstrip.
Morris said responders found two conscious occupants inside of the aircraft. Both patients suffered injuries with one being transported to a local hospital for their injuries and one being treated on scene, but refusing transport.
