OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) -
New details continue to emerge as the National Transportation Safety Board or NTSB continues to look into the deadly plane crash that took place in Ocala on Halloween.

The NTSB report says Peter Morrow was on a multi-leg trip from the Punta Gorda Airport in Charlotte County to California when he discovered a problem with the fuel gauge and stopped at the Ocala International Airport.

Morrow, who had more than 7,600 hours of flight experience, went with mechanic Christopher Belcher for a test flight.

An air-traffic controller said the plane was flying low and, as they returned to the airport, the plane nose-dived onto State Road 200 and hit two vehicles.

Both Morrow and Belcher died in the crash.

The airplane remains with the NTSB for additional examination.
