Five people were killed in a South Lake Tahoe plane accident Saturday evening. The crash and resulting 1 acre fire will necessitate that the people killed in this South Lake Tahoe wrongful death accident be identified through dental records. The plane that crashed was a Piper PA32-. In 2005, the same plane was involved in a crash on the Emerald Coast of Florida. The plane was registered to Francisco De La Mora from Fresno, CA. Jose Lopez, a spokesman for Jdm Transport, a transportation corporation owned by Mr. De La Mora, said the Fresno area business man had taken his wife, his daughter and a couple friends to Lake Tahoe on a day trip. We agree with the sentiments of the Claire Fortier, Mayor of South Lake Tahoe, as we at NV-Attorney.com offer our sympathies for the families involved in this Northern California airplane tragedy.

The Reno Air Races crash occurred when a P-51D Mustang, piloted by Jimmy Leeward crashed to the ground in a crowd of spectators.
