Three Die After Aircraft Hits Mississippi House

Three Die After Aircraft Hits Mississippi House

A Ridgeland, Miss., man piloting a small plane and his two passengers died when the aircraft crashed into a west Jackson home early Tuesday evening.

The single-engine aircraft, a Piper PA-32 Cherokee Six, struck the home of Loretta and Roosevelt Jamison of 220 Marcus L. Butler Drive, just off West Capitol Street near the Jackson Zoo, shortly after 5 p.m. when it experienced engine trouble minutes after leaving nearby Hawkins Field. Loretta Jamison, who was in the home, escaped by jumping out a window, her relatives said. Roosevelt Jamison wasn’t home at the time.

Family members of the pilot, John Tilton, confirmed his death. “We just don’t have anything to say right now,” a male family member answering the phone at Tilton’s home said.
