UPDATE: Fatal Plane Crash Near Coeur d'Alene

KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho - Two people are dead after a plane crash that happened Friday night just off of US 95 in Idaho near the Red Hog Ridge area. Kootenai County Dispatch was notified of an emergency beacon just after 5 pm Friday. The Spokane County Sheriff Helicopter was called out and located the wreckage of a single-engine Cessna 210. Authorities say the pilot, 50-year-old Craig Kestner and his 21-year-old son, Brock Kestner were flying from the Basin, Wyoming area to Coeur d'Alene when their plane crashed about 10 miles south of Coeur d'Alene.

The family owns a construction company and were flying into Coeur d'Alene to look at a rock crusher. Upon hearing of a plane crash, the wife of Craig called authorities to ask for the tail number of the plane. After hearing the number, she sadly told them that they should look for her son as well. Both bodies were located and removed from the scene Saturday afternoon.

The National Transportation Safety Board, along with the FAA and the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office are still investigating the accident.
