Small Aircraft Crashes in Midwestern Field
It was heading to Bloomington. The twin engine Cessna, which was ferrying seven people from Indianapolis, crashed about a mile from its intended runway, killing everyone aboard. The plane was leaving the NCAA championship game and carrying the Illinois State deputy director of athletics and its associate head men’s basketball coach, both fathers of two. Authorities lost contact with the pilot around midnight and found the wreckage three hours later. Dense fog may be to blame for the crash, but crews are still investigating the crash site.
