Terrible news, Condolences to all involved.

I think this must be the One ?

BARSTOW, Calif., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- A small plane crashed in California Sunday, killing three people, police said.

The California Highway Patrol said it received a call about 1:45 p.m. about a plane crash near Lake Dolores, east of Barstow, KABC-TV, Los Angeles, reported. The plane's wreckage was found about 45 minutes later, about a half-mile south of the lake and the three people on board were confirmed dead.

Los Angeles' KTLA-TV reported the Beech 33 Bonanza went down while trying to make an emergency landing at Barstow-Daggett Airport. The three victims were traveling from Las Vegas to Corona, the TV station said.

Not the same one. Unfortunately, that was Rick Huseman, an off road truck driver.

Shitty weekend all around

Huseman's racing website confirmed the deaths with the following message:

Tragically, Rick and his brother, Jeff, passed away October 16th in a plane crash. We will post funeral arrangements as soon as they are available. Please keep Michelle and the Huseman family in your prayers."

The plane was traveling from Las Vegas to Corona when it went down about 5 miles northeast of the airport. Coroner's officials say it took three hours to recover the victims because the wreckage was in a canyon.

Nick died in his sleep Saturday night in his hotel room, The other mechanic in the room with him found him when he woke up to go to the airport.

Cause of death is unsure at this point all we know is nick was feeling sick the few days leading up to the race.
He didn't go out any of the nights he was in Vegas. Just ate dinner and went to bed.

Nick was a great mechanic, and a great friend.

RIP Nick you will be missed by all.

Very sad deal, condolences to friends & family.

I had an uncle pass away very suddenly, then mother who had to have a valve transplant. That pushed me to get an echo gram, which found a leaky valve that my dr. said wasn't anything to worry about yet - but at least I know now and am aware. Simple EKGs won't pick that kind of stuff up, or even worse stuff like looming blockages, which likely a lot of people don't know - echo (cardio) grams are way underutilized and too far below most peoples knowledge horizons, IMO.

Not saying this is related, just passing on some personal info...
