Breaking News: Building near Texas School for the Deaf struck by plane

February 18, 2010

By Bug

A small airplane crashed Thursday morning into a building in Austin, Texas, not far from Texas School for the Deaf said Deaf Witness Paul (no last name). He was walking and saw the black smoke pouring out of the building.  2 minutes later a long ladder fire truck was rushing in front of him. Paul said he remembered someone who is Deaf working at that building. He wonders if the Deaf employee is still working there. He did not see the plane flying really low.  Also there is FBI building right next to the one it hit.

The accident happens in half hour ago. It’s too early to get more details. We will keep you informed if there is any more news about these Deaf people at that site.

    The crash was nowhere near the School for the Deaf. The crash happened in North Austin near the Mopac and 183. TSD is in South Austin off of Congress Avenue. Careful when reporting on this- this could have generated unnecessary panic.

    Yea please verify first before publishing. The building was nowhere “nearby” but approximately 11 miles away.

    Yeah, correct! The crash didn’t occurred near TSD. I’ve been to Austin, TX many times where my brother & my sister lives in Austin. TSD is about 15 minutes drive from the IRS Building. Too far away.

    Ugh? I live 6 miles from TSD and I never saw smoke coming from that area. The IRS is in northeast part of Austin. You should check with real sources first.
