The National Transportation Safety Board just released their factual report on a case our Ohio plane crash lawyers are handling involving the Ohio fatal plane crash that killed six people, including a four-year-old girl.

The report finds that the pilot, Gene Damschroder, was advised on at least two separate occasions by his eye doctor not to drive, according to the Toledo Blade.

Mr. Damschroder had also been involved in four Ohio car accidents from 1998 to 2008, according to the report, and the 86-year-old had also been treated for age-related macular degeneration.

Ohio plane crash lawyer Dale Emch was quoted by the Toledo Blade regarding the fatal Ohio plane crash.

"I think the NTSB factual report makes it absolutely clear that Mr. Damschroder had no business driving a car let alone flying a plane, particularly a plane full of people who were paying to support the Lions Club," Attorney Dale Emch said. "I think it was really outrageous that he was flying around all of those people, all day long, let alone the young people on that plane that died that day, when he had been warned that he shouldn't be driving a car, both in 2007 and 2008, according to the NTSB report."

Our condolences go out to all families who lost a loved one in the plane crash.
