Authorities Still Identifying Plane Crash Victims

SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) — Authorities are still working on identifying at least one of two victims of a small plane crash in Sauk Rapids.

The St. Cloud Times reports one victim has been preliminarily identified, but officials aren’t going to release that information until the IDs of both victims are known.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

The Brumwell RV-6 experimental airplane crashed into a house after it flew near an Allegiant Air flight from Mesa, Arizona.

The NTSB tells the Star Tribune that authorities will look into whether the second aircraft may have played a role.

Allegiant officials are cooperating with the NTSB.
