Hours after domestic violence arrest, husband crashes stolen plane into his own home where wife was staying

ABC News

Just hours after being arrested and released on bail for allegedly assaulting his wife, a Utah man stole a plane and crashed it into his own home where his wife was staying, police said.

The man, 47-year-old Duane Youd, did not survive the crash Monday, officials stated.

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

Youd’s wife as well as a boy were inside the house at the time of the crash. They were lucky they escaped and the plane did not hit other buildings or any power lines, police said.

Youd was an experienced pilot who had access to the twin engine Cessna 525 jet because he flew for the company that owned it, authorities said. He was the only one in the aircraft when it crashed and killed him.

Video taken by a neighbor showed flames coming out of the house and people watching from a distance. The neighbor said his mother heard the plane pass by twice before hearing the crash.

In another video taken after the crash, the engines of the jet can be heard continuing to whine and actually seemed to be revving up, even as the house goes up in flames.

The crash was the third incident with Youd that required authorities within a 12-hour period.

At 7:30 p.m., the night before, Youd had been arrested for assaulting his wife and was released on bail, police said.

Hours later, at 12:30 a.m., Youd called and asked a patrol officer be present at his house to “keep the peace” as he picked up belongings and his truck, officials said. There was no argument during this incident.

The plane crash took place just two hours later.

Police said Youd had also been arrested for domestic violence at the house in a previous incident within the past year.

  1. Katie says:

    Another air plane crash? Is this method becoming the new justice system?

  2. Charles Walker says:

    didn’t violate the restraining order by setting foot on the property. Funny the nose of the high speed jet couldn’t even pierce a wood frame house.

  3. Enemy of the State says:

    And look people a small jet full of fuel couldn’t bring down a stick frame built home
    Yet the world trade centers were demolished and shipped off so no one could investigate the truth

    And the occupants of the home , alive

  4. Martist says:

    Did the HOA decide to bring down the neighbors’ house yet due to the damage the plane caused? Had to have been multiple planes that hit it because I’ve NEVER seen so much plane wreckage after a crash. Well, at least comparatively to this other date of some crashes that I just can’t seem to remember…
