ND man killed in Montana plane crash

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. — Officials in southwestern Montana have identified a man killed in a small plane crash at the West Yellowstone airport.

Gallatin County Sheriff and Coroner Brian Gootkin says 67-year-old Andrezej Furmanski was a resident of both Citra, Fla., and North Dakota.

Furmanski and another man were in a Beechcraft Bonanza, a small passenger plane that crashed at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The injured man was flown to the hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where he was listed in critical condition. His condition Tuesday was not immediately known and his identity has not been released.

Gootkin did not provide any further information about the crash or the victims, saying the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are continuing to investigate the crash.
