WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A 64-year-old man has died after being injured when the small plane he was in crashed in eastern Iowa, killing the pilot.
The Overton Funeral Home in Traer confirmed Tuesday that Max Morrison, of Traer, died Monday at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
Morrison suffered burns and other injuries when the plane crashed while approaching an unimproved airstrip in Clutier.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the plane clipped power lines as it headed for the airstrip. An NTSB report says the pilot and plane owner, 69-year-old William Konicek, also of Traer, may not have known the lines were there. He'd landed at the airstrip before, but the report says the power lines recently had been erected
