Coroner releases IDs of plane crash victims

BIGLERVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Adams County coroner has identified two people who died in a plane crash near Biglerville last week.

Coroner Patricia Felix said DNA results confirmed the victims are 17-year-old Miranda Rose and 46-year-old Michael Bronzburg, both of 9 Hollow Road in Catawissa, Pa.

Both died of multiple injuries and their deaths were ruled accidental, according to Felix.

Investigators said the plane, a Piper PA-30 registered to Bronzburg, went down in a corn field in the 800 block of Old Carlisle Road in Butler Township the morning after Christmas and scattered debris over a quarter-mile.

The plane had taken off from Bloomsburg Airport about 45 minutes earlier.

The News Item of Shamokin reported that Bronzburg and Felix, his girlfriend's daughter, were flying to South Carolina to pick up Bronzburg's 11-year-old twins for the holidays.

Neighbors in the area heard what sounded like engine trouble before the crash, according to police, but federal officials continue to investigate.

The National Transportation Safety Board plans to release a preliminary report this month, but a final report will take a year or more.
