Originally reported by KBTX, on Sunday, Aug 30., a plane crash at Coulter Airfield in Bryan killed three people and left one passenger in critical condition.
According to KBTX the three fatalities are reported as a father, mother and their daughter, who was a senior at Texas A&M University. The survivor of the flight is a male student at A&M; his relation to the family is unknown. KBTX is withholding the names of everyone involved at this time until they are released by authorities.
