Bakersfield woman killed in plane crash

A Bakersfield woman is dead after a plane crash in Arizona.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office says 49 year old Josephine Simos Chan was a passenger in the plane being flown by her husband, Vidson. Their 13 year old son Cody was also on board the flight, which crashed near the town of Wikiup while flying from Sedona, Arizona to Minter Field in Shafter Thursday morning.

Josephine was killed, while her son and husband were hospitalized with serious injuries.

The cause of that crash is now being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration, but officials say the plane may have been experiencing engine problems.
