DALLAS (AP) – A pilot has told investigators that he warned a Dallas-area woman away from the front of the small plane before she walked into the propeller.

The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday released a preliminary report on the Dec. 3 accident in McKinney that injured online fashion editor Lauren Scruggs. The Plano woman, who lost an eye and her left hand, continues in rehabilitation.

The NTSB report says the pilot, whose name wasn’t listed, landed and left the engine running while awaiting his next passenger to view holiday lights.

The pilot says he saw Scruggs exiting in front of the strut, he put out his right arm to divert her and said walk behind the plane.

He looked away, heard someone yell “stop, stop” and Scruggs was on the ground.
