There have been waaaay too many plane crashes lately, it seems, and our hearts are broken having to report on another one.

Torrey Ward was the associate head coach for Illinois State basketball, and he was on a small plane returning from the Final Four title game on Tuesday game when bad weather — mainly fog — reportedly caused catastrophic problems for the flight. Seven people lost their lives.

Here's what the Chicago Tribune reported:

"[The] Cessna 414 had left the Indianapolis airport around 11 p.m. and hit heavy fog over central Illinois, according to Scott Barrows, the father-in-law of the owner of the plane, Scott Bittner, who was among those killed."

We can't even imagine what their families and friends are going through.

Filed under: Icky Icky Poo

jason biggs apologize again for insensitive tweets

Oh Jason Biggs, everyone copes differently to every situation, but we will say those tweets were too soon.

The Orange Is The New Black star received a lot of flack for his ill-advised and poorly timed posts after the tragic Malaysia Airlines plane crash.

This wasn't the first time the actor got in trouble for what he said on the micro-blogging site!

Watch A Pilot Narrowly Avoid A Crash With ANOTHER AIRPLANE In This Frightening New Video!

Filed under: Etc.Scary!

two planes almost crash

A fear of flying is normal. A fear of landing, on the other hand, is not something most passengers have to experience.

But that's not true for the riders aboard two airplanes that just barely avoided a crash at El Prat Airport in Barcelona this past weekend.

A Russian UTair plane was just a few hundred feet from arriving from an almost 2,000 mile flight, when an Aerolineas Argentinian Airbus pulled onto the runway directly in the Russian plane's path!

If it wasn't for some fast thinking by the Russian pilots, who knows how many casualties there might have been on both flights!

Watch the pulse-raising video of the near miss below!

Ch-ch-check it out …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
