Suit blames engine maker

MOBILE, Ala. -- Continental Motors has been accused of making a defective engine that caused a 2010 plane crash that killed a jogger on the beach in Hilton Head, S.C. Attorneys for the Mobile-based manufacturer, know as Teledyne Continental Motors before its sale to China’s AVIC last year, say the engine had nothing to do with the accident. The pilot of the kit-built plane and several other companies involved in the manufacturer and maintenance of the plane are also defendants in the suit filed in South Carolina.
