There are new details on the plane crash that claimed the life of a Brownsville pastor in Weslaco.
Federal investigators revealed a fuel imbalance on the right wing may be to blame for the crash. The left tank had been filled with 17 gallons of gas, but the right wing was not filled because the fuel nozzle broke and was not filled. That is believed eventually sent the plane into a leftward roll and taking it down.
