Montgomery County Man, Teenage Girl Die in Idaho Plane Crash

Eastern Idaho authorities say a 61-year-old man from Pennsylvania and a 17-year-old girl from North Carolina died in a plane crash in Idaho near the Wyoming border.

Officials say Reade Genzlinger of Bryn Athyn, Montgomery County and the girl from Chapel Hill died in the crash at about 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office declined Tuesday to release the girl's name. The agency says the two were part-time residents of Alpine, Wyoming.

Officials say Genzlinger owned the small plane that went down about 2 miles north of the Alpine Airport in Wyoming.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

Genzlinger was an avid aviator who served as director and secretary/treasurer of the Recreational Aviation Foundation.
