A total loss of engine power is to blame for the plane crash that happened last week at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg.

According to a report from the National Transportation Safety Board, the Piper Cherokee experienced a total loss of engine power as it flew toward Albert Whitted Airport Sept. 15.

On its landing approach, the plane crashed at the park, located at 7th Avenue NE and Bayshore Drive near the historic Vinoy Hotel.

The plane had taken off from Tallahassee carrying three men and a 17-year-old girl from Ireland, authorities said.

The pilot, 57-year-old Grant Jordan, and one of the passengers, 52-year-old Aloysius Ryan, were taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg as trauma alerts. Both have since been released.

The two other occupants, Eamonn Harnell, 48, and the girl, whose name wasn't given, sustained minor injuries.

Jordan told investigators he experienced engine failure on his landing approach, forcing him to land in the park, about a mile from the airport.
