RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) -- Two people from Oregon injured in a single-engine plane crash at the Saratoga Airport in Wyoming remain hospitalized.
Two other people who were injured in the Labor Day crash -- pilot Ronney Bowker and Mary Ann Thenell -- have been released but Thenell is now in a nearby rehabilitation hospital.
The Rawlins Daily Times (http://bit.ly/oixjD0 ) reports that Bowker's wife is in stable condition and Thenell's husband has been upgraded to serious condition at the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colo.
Their Cessna Turbo crashed while making a stop in Saratoga on the way home to Eugene, Ore.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board's preliminary report, Ronney Bowker aborted the landing after wind blew the plane left of the runway's centerline. The plane then lost all power.
