BRIGHTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - State police have released the names of a Costa Rican woman killed and a Michigan pilot injured when the man's 1940s-era, single-engine plane crashed a swampy area near a southeastern Michigan airport.
Lt. Dan Davis said Sunday that dead woman was 56-year-old Ana Lorena Arguedas Ortega. He didn't have her hometown.
Davis identifies the pilot as 79-year-old Walter Davenport of Brighton. Davenport was reported in serious condition at the University of Michigan medical center.
The crash happened Saturday morning in Livingston County's Brighton Township, about 40 miles west-northwest of Detroit.
Brighton Area Fire Authority Fire Chief Michael O'Brian says the two-seat aircraft crashed in a wooded area on the edge of Woodland Lake near Brighton Airport.
Davis says it's unknown if Davenport was landing or taking off.
