Plane Crash Claims Lives of 3 Saint Lucie County Men

The crash of a small plane in northern Georgia, has apparently claimed the lives of three St. Lucie County men.

The FAA said a Piper Cherokee aircraft crashed near Habersham County Airport, in Baldwin, Georgia, on Thursday morning, just after midnight.

The CBS affiliate in Atlanta reported the plane came down in a patch of woods, very close to several dwellings in a mobile home park.  The TV station said conditions were foggy and rainy at the time.

Law enforcement told the Atlanta affiliate the flight originated in Ft. Pierce.

A north Georgia radio station website reported that the Habersham County Coroner’s Office on Thursday night, identified the crash’s three victims as 58-year-old Thomas Lycett, of Port St. Lucie; his employee 48-year-old Steven Wisor, of Ft. Pierce, and Wisor’s cousin 45-year old Edward Black, of Port St. Lucie.

A check of Florida business records shows Lycett as the registered agent and director of both Easy Livin’ RV Park of White City, and Treasure Coast RV Center.

Law enforcement told reporters two dogs on board the plane were also killed.
