Funeral Set For Firefighters Killed In Marion Plane Crash

Joint funeral services will be held next week for two Madison County volunteer firefighters who were killed Monday in a plane crash at the Marion Municipal Airport.

Kyle Hibst and David Wittkamper of Elwood died when their small plane crashed into a corporate jet Monday afternoon.  The plane carrying Hibst and Wittkamper was taking off at the time when it crashed into the jet from the Avis Corporation of Upland that was landing at the time.  Several Avis officials…including C-E-O Leland Boren…were returning from a business trip to Michigan when the crash occurred.

Funeral services for the two firefighters will be held at Elwood High School next Wednesday at 11 a-m with full firefighter honors.
