Man flies plane into own home after assaulting wife in nearby canyon

Duane Youd crashed a plane into his own home family members say

A pilot who was killed after crashing a plane into a Utah home he owned Monday morning was arrested on a domestic violence charge hours before he piloted the aircraft into the building where his wife and adult son were staying, police said.

The wife escaped the cabin of the truck and got into its bed as Youd drove erratically before police pulled him over and arrested him for domestic violence.

But the damage was largely contained to Youd's house, and officers arrived to find a plane partially inside the home.

Ms Sandoval said he was an experienced pilot.

Mr Youd, 47, was arrested at about 7:30pm on Sunday after witnesses called police to report that he was assaulting his wife, Utah County Sheriff's sergeant Spencer Cannon said. It's understood that his wife and child, who were in the home, survived the incident. The plane took off from a Utah airport, according to police, although they did not say which airport.

The couple had been drinking and went to American Fork Canyon to talk about problems they were having.

Within hours, Youd was taking off in the plane from Spanish Fork-Springville Airport, about 15 miles north of his house.

Then he flew the plane into his house, where his wife and son were inside, according to KSL. That's why Sandoval told The Deseret News that the incident was a "miracle".

They don't know if Youd was allowed to access the plane.

Photos of the wreckage showed the plane charred and in pieces in the front yard with an overturned and crushed auto nearby.

Flames engulfed the house in the city of Payson after the crash and ensuing fire at 2:30 a.m.

The National Transportation Safety Board will be at the scene later today to investigate, officials said.

Court records show Youd had previously been charged with disorderly conduct after a domestic violence incident in April, and was released on probation and ordered to attend counseling.
