A father and daughter from Des Moines died Tuesday in a single engine plane crash in Lee’s Summit in western Missouri.
Federal authorities are trying to determine what led to the crash that killed 53-year-old Vincent Basile and 24-year-old Kelli Basile.
Lee’s Summit Police Department Sergeant Chris Depue says the two Iowans were traveling to Missouri to visit family.
“People on the scene attempted to give aid to those folks. They pulled them from the wreckage of the aircraft and attempted to render aid. Unfortunately, both persons on board the aircraft were killed,” says Depue.
