Officials: Pilot injured in crash of small plane has died

HUTCHINSON, Minn. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials say one of two people injured in a small plane crash in McLeod County earlier this week has died.

Authorities say Dr. Richard Jolkovsky died of injuries he suffered Monday afternoon when a single-engine plane went down south of Hutchinson. The 61-year-old Avon man was piloting the plane.

Kyle Fiebelkorn, a 24-year-old passenger from St. Louis Park, remains hospitalized in stable condition. The aviation-tracking website reported that the plane left Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie and retraced its path at times before crashing in a rural part of the county.

Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
