The accident happened around 1:00 p.m. near the Lawrence Municipal Airport. A small plane carrying 60-year-old Al Lavender was on approach to the airport in a single engine Sonex aircraft, when he crashed into a condo at Prides Crossing on Riverview Boulevard.
Al Lavender was tragically killed in the accident. The crash did not injure anyone inside the building, as the damage was contained to the condo’s attic. The condo complex was the site of a previous aircraft crash in 1999.
