2 killed in small-plane crash near California lake

There are no details yet on the victims or what caused the crash. (May 8, 2017)

Authorities have identified two men killed when their small plane crashed near Northern California's Lake Berryessa.

The Napa County Sheriff's Office says 55-year-old Jon Murray Karkow and 41-year-old Cagri Sever were killed Monday.

The office says both Karkow, who was piloting, and Sever worked for Icon Aircraft, which manufactured the single-engine plane they were flying.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper reports the plane was an amphibious sport plane that can land and take off on water (http://bit.ly/2qKyNa1). The crash was on land, however. Lake Berryessa is 80 miles (129 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco.

The office says the planes have been a common sight in the lake area.
