HOUSTON (AP) – A National Transportation Safety Board investigator says a small plane that crashed into a car in a parking lot near a Houston airport, killing three people aboard the aircraft, likely stalled before plummeting to the ground.

Tom Latson with the NTSB says officials are still investigating what caused Thursday’s crash.

NTSB officials say the plane took off from Norman, Oklahoma, and was trying to land at Houston’s Hobby Airport when a traffic controller told the pilot the plane was too high and asked it to go around.

During the second attempt to land, the traffic controller determined the plane was still too high and asked it to again go around. NTSB officials say the plane made a turn to the left and then took a nose dive into the parking lot.
