CLIFTON PARK - Federal investigators have now determined that engine failure caused a deadly plane crash in Clifton Park last year.
It was one year ago Thursday that a small plane crashed in Clifton Park, killing its pilot, Jim Quinn and local businessman, Walter Uccellini.
Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board have determined that the plane's engine lost power, causing the plane to go down.
However, they could not figure out why the engine failed because of the extensive damage.
The plane had been in for maintenance work the day before the crash.
