RENO — Lieutenant governor candidate Sue Wagner and state treasurer candidate Bob Seale were injured in a plane crash Monday on the eve of Nevada's primary election. Seale's wife was believed killed.
Churchill County Sheriff Bill Lawry said the Republican candidates, both of Reno, were among five people aboard a twin-engine Cessna 411 that crashed shortly after takeoff from the Fallon, Nev., municipal airport, about 60 miles east of here.
Sources said Seale's wife, Judy, was killed in the crash. Lawry confirmed one death but withheld the victim's name pending notification of family members.
The sheriff said two other occupants, Stephanie Tyler, a campaign aide to Wagner, and Brian Krolicki, Seale's campaign manager, suffered less serious injuries and were taken to a Fallon hospital.
