WEST JORDAN, Utah – The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday said the aircraft that crashed into a home in West Jordan over the weekend is on its way to a secure location in Phoenix.

NTSB told KSL that because of COVID-19, they are unable to do their final inspection in person. They have teams from offices all over the country who are doing examinations and getting information to start the investigation.

In total, six people were on board the aircraft when it crashed. The pilot Lee Wyckoff, his 9-month-old daughter Coral, and Milda Shibonis all died. The pilot’s wife, Rebecca Wyckoff was injured.

Two other children were also on the plane. Two-year-old Cody Mitchell is in critical condition and 12-year-old Veda Sheperd miraculously walked away from the crash.

The homeowner, 72-year-old Mary Quintana, was also badly hurt. She was sitting on her deck at 3847 Piccadilly Circle (8710 South) at the time of the crash.

NTSB said teams from the FAA and Piper Aircraft have photographed and documented the wreckage. NTSB is now looking at everything that occurred moments before the crash.

“Only commercials airliners have black boxes, but sometimes individual pilots can have electronic devices such as iPads or GPS units or even your iPhone — anything electronic that we can recover could in our laboratory come up with some information on that would give us information on the last moments of flight,” said NTSB spokesperson Eric Weiss.

NTSB said they plan to have a preliminary report in two weeks. The cause of the crash could take one to two years to complete.
