The Cape Cod Times reported that, after emergency responders received a call for a report of a plane crash at the end of the runway at Race Point Road, the aircraft was in flames.
It was not a high-impact crash, but some were left with burns.
In an interview with WHDH, passenger Autumn Kerr – who reportedly suffered burns, is a recent cancer survivor and lost her best friend in a plane crash 20 years ago – said she thought she was going to die and that the plane’s pilot saved her life.

“All of a sudden we just hit the ground and the trees, and it burst into flames in the front, and then the right side burst into flames,” she said.
“I ripped the seat out and I turned it around and used it as a shield from the flames, and then I couldn’t get the seatbelt out and everyone was gone. I was like please get my seatbelt off,” Kerr recalled to the station.
“I think that because we were the last, he came back and unbuckled it,” she said of the pilot. “He looked pretty injured because I saw him on the gurney when I went to my ambulance.”
In a statement, Cape Air said its officials were working with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and local authorities and the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) told the Times that it would also investigate the crash.
