3 Gautier residents dead after plane crash in LA

LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - Three people died after a small plane crashed in a wooded area in southeastern Louisiana, authorities said.

The Cessna 182 went down just before midnight Friday in a heavily wooded area west of Independence, said Perry Rushing of the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office.

Rushing identified the pilot as Glyn Johnson, 39, of Gautier, Miss. Also killed in the crash were Tabitha Dolbare, 39, of Vancleave, Miss., and her son, Nelson Dolbare, 13.

The cause of the crash was unknown. Weather did not appear to be a factor. The pilot was in contact with flight controllers in Baton Rouge at the time and did not issue a distress signal, Rushing said.

Rushing says the single-engine plane was flying from Slidell to

Marksville in central Louisiana.

Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the

National Transportation Safety Board were sent to investigate the

wreckage, which was spread over several hundred yards.
