Fatal Plane Crash In Lane County Kills Four, Names Released
Four people who worked for the Oregon Country Fair have been identified as the victims of a weekend crash of a small airplane in Lane County.
The fair is a three-day music and crafts gathering with roots in the counterculture. The 43rd fair is scheduled for mid-July at Veneta, west of Eugene.
The plane went down Saturday afternoon shortly after taking off from a private airstrip.
KVAL-TV reports the Lane County sheriff's office released the names of the victims Monday.
Two were from Eugene: 41-year-old Jerome Roch Delbosc D'Auzon and 27-year-old Erin Thomas Frank Noble.
Two were from Junction City: 40-year-old Robyn Leigh Weir and 37-year-old Christopher Robin Kent.
Officials haven't said what caused the crash. A federal agency investigation could take months.
