AUSTIN, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania state police have identified three Canadians killed when a small plane crashed in north-central Pennsylvania.
Troopers from the Coudersport barracks say the victims are 25-year-old Rifat Tawig, 18-year-old Cory Mijac and 19-year-old Benjamin Jeffries. All were from Ontario.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the Piper PA-28 took off Sunday from Richmond International Airport in Virginia and was headed to St. Catharines/Niagara District Airport in Canada when it crashed in Keating Township in southern Potter County. That’s about 150 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
The National Transportation Safety Board is heading the crash investigation.
Police say the plane crashed in a steep, rugged and wooded area and that crash debris was found scattered for several hundred yards.
The FAA says it lost radio contact Sunday night when the plane changed course to avoid a storm.
