A fatal plane crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. Sunday a half mile east of State Highway 58 and quarter mile north of 1080 in a field, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports. The plane was located about 7 a.m. Monday six and a half miles south of Hydro, Oklahoma.

The 1967 Beachcraft Bonanza was flown by Walter R. Mullaney, 62, of El Reno. He and a passenger, Cesar Gomez, 27, of Ft. Lupton, Colorado, both died at the scene of massive injuries. Their bodies were transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Mullaney was flying from Odessa, Texas, to El Reno when the plane was diverted because of weather at the Hinton Airport. The Highway Patrol reported skies were cloudy with light fog at the time of the crash.
