2 plane crash victims identified as Pa. couple

NICHOLSON, Pa. (AP) — Two people killed in the crash of a World War II-vintage plane into a wooded area in northeastern Pennsylvania have been identified as a couple who lived only a few miles away.

The Susquehanna County coroner’s office said Wednesday that the victims were 73-year-old Thomas Huf and 65-year-old Elaine Huf of Kingsley, Pa. Both died of multiple traumatic injuries and the deaths were ruled accidental.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Cessna T50 was destroyed by fire after it crashed about 10 miles north of Factoryville in Susquehanna County.

The National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the crash, said the Cessna T-50 took off on Labor Day from Sandusky, Ohio, heading for Wilkes-Barre.

The Bucks County Courier Times said Elaine Huf was a retired Bristol Township police officer.
