Marie Morris and Phil Morris Victims in Santee Plane Crash

SANTEE, CA (October 12, 2021) – Marie Morris and Phil Morris were hospitalized after a fatal plane crash in Santee.

The San Diego Union-Tribune and ABC 10 News identified the Santee couple as two of the three victims in the accident on Monday afternoon.

The incident began when Marie Morris and Phil Morris were inside their home in Santee near Greencastle and Jeremy streets.

For an unknown reason, a twin-engine Cessna C340 crashed in the neighborhood. The aircraft operated by Sugata Das hit a UPS truck and several houses in the area.

The small plane left Yuma, Arizona to go to the Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Field in Kearny Mesa when it crashed. Two homes, including the couple’s house, ended up burned.

UPS Truck Driver and Pilot Killed

The incident took place on October 11 at around 12:15 p.m. near Greencastle and Jeremy streets. Firefighters along with the paramedics arrived at the scene, east of the Santana High School.

Marie Morris and Phil Morris sustained burns as a result of the plane crash. The man suffered injuries to his head, one side of his face, and his arms and legs.

The woman sustained 3rd-degree burns on her head, face, and arms and hands. Medical personnel then  rushed them to a hospital for treatment.

Family members set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the hospital bills of the wounded victims.

Officers confirmed that the driver of the UPS truck and the pilot died following the incident. Meanwhile, the cause of the Santee plane crash is still under investigation.

No Fees Unless You Win

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
