MYERSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration says a pilot flew through heavy fog before his small plane crashed in Lebanon County on Tuesday, injuring all four men on board.

Eric Black, owner of AB Holdings, which owns the plane, says the pilot and three passengers are expected to survive.

Black identified the pilot as Titus Hershberger, but says he didn’t know the names of the father and two sons who were passengers.

The plane crashed shortly after its 5:30 p.m. Tuesday takeoff from Deck Airport in Jackson Township.

The FAA was continuing to investigate the crash.

State police are also investigating. They say the men on the plane suffered “moderate” injuries and were taken to Hershey Medical Center. Their conditions were not immediately available Thursday.
