Pilot of Crop Dusting Plane That Crashed in Lamb County in Late October Dies

LUBBOCK, TX - The pilot of a crop duster plane that crashed in Lamb County in late October has died. 

Joshua Kyle Hollis, 23, passed away at University Medical Center on Sunday, a hospital spokesman told EverythingLubbock.com.

The plane crash occurred approximately 5 miles north of Olton at 8:20 a.m. on October 24, an NTSB report stated. 

“Local law enforcement stated that multiple witnesses observed the accident sequence,” the NTSB report said.

The report also said, “The witnesses reported that the airplane was flying north over highway 70 and made a left turn towards west. During the left turn the airplane descended, impacted a field and burst into flames.”

The report did not say what caused the crash which is not unusual for a preliminary report.  At some point the NTSB will release a subsequent report with more information on the cause or most-likely cause of the crash.
