CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man who was killed in a small plane crash in southeast Wyoming.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports 62-year-old Zane Schmeeckle, of Fort Morgan, Colorado, crashed his single-engine plane into a field south of Carpenter on Saturday evening. He was the only one on board.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash, which involved a Bellanca 7GCBC Citabria "C'' Package plane.
Laramie County Coroner Rebecca Reid says it could be several weeks before an autopsy is released.
