GLENWOOD SPRINGS – A Colorado family of four has been identified as the victims of a fatal small airplane crash.
Relatives on Sunday said in a statement that 47-year-old Jeff Makepeace, his 45-year-old wife, Jennifer, and their twin 10-year-old children, Addison and Benjamin, died in the crash late Friday.
The family from the city of Fort Collins was flying from a Fort Collins-area airport to Moab, Utah, when their single-engine plane crashed about in mountainous terrain near Glenwood Springs about 170 miles west of Denver.
Federal authorities are investigating the cause of the crash of the Cirrus SR22. It’s a single-engine plane that can seat up to five passengers.
The statement says details of funeral services for the family are pending.
