Oregon officials say 2, not 3, dead in plane crash
BURNS, OR -- The Harney County sheriff says two people have died in the crash of a small plane about 70 miles south of the Eastern Oregon city of Burns.
Sheriff Dave Glerup said Wednesday night via e-mail that no additional information would be available from his office until relatives have been notified.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said earlier he believed three people were presumed dead in the Wednesday morning crash but he said Wednesday night that information was just preliminary.
The FAA described the plane as a twin-engine Aero Commander 500B. No details of the crash were immediately available.
The plane is registered to a Bonsall, Calif., man but it was not known if the owner was aboard.
