Second victim in Ga. plane crash identified
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office has identified the second person who died in a small plane crash earlier this week.
Authorities say 23-year-old Brittany McAuley, a former Emory University student, was killed Tuesday when a Raytheon 390 Premier I plane crashed in northwest Atlanta.
Federal Aviation Administration officials have said the plane was owned by a Norcross, Ga.-based textile company and was en route to New Orleans from the Fulton County airport.
Authorities have already identified the pilot as 67-year-old Peter J. Mallen, of Atlanta.
Medical examiner's officials say McAuley is originally from New York, and both victims died of blunt force injuries.
