Crash of an Invader in Germany at the end of WW2

Hi all,
does anybody has information concering about a A-26 which crashed at the end of WW 2 in the area 'm living (February or March 1945) in Germany in the vicinity of Wurzburg, Schweinfurt and Kitzingen on a saturday at about 11 ò clock due to a very foggy weather. The crashplace is very close to the oil storage at Ebrach. This could but must not have been the target of the air raid. I know about Lincoln H. Stetson crew (March 31, 1945) but all informations are saying the plane crashed at Karlsruhe shot down by flak. All information given by eyewitnesses concerning the crash are very similiar in relation to the bombing of Ebrach and Rothenburg ob der Tauber at March 31, 1945, but it must have been another ship. Because of three hands the people have found they have buried to American airmen, before the deads were exhumed after the war. But there are no more informations in the villlage of the crashplace and the village neary, where the killed airmen were buried first. Often the people were not able to find out the exactly number of the deads. And this plane exploded very strong.
This crash is a very hard nut to crack.
Therefore already now thanks for any info.
Best regards

Norbert Vollmann
