Two dead in Colorado plane crash

Steamboat Springs, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the two people who died in a plane crash in northern Colorado.

The Denver Post reports that Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg identified the two as William Earl Allen, 62, of Broomfield, Colorado, and a flying student, Terry Lynn Stewart, 60, of Houston, Texas.

According to Allen's Facebook page, he was a Certified Flight Instructor at Journeys Aviation in Boulder, the Post reports. The newspaper says a person at the aviation company declined to comment Sunday.

The plane was headed to Boulder from Steamboat Springs on Saturday. A search for the aircraft began when it was reported overdue. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer tells the Post that the plane was a Piper PA-28.

Routt County Search and Rescue incident commander Jim Linville says at least two other planes have crashed in the same area in the past 10 years.
