YetterColeman partner Greg Coleman of Austin, a former solicitor general of Texas, died in a plane crash Tuesday night near Destin, Fla.
Michele Nicholson, public information officer for the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, says that the body of the private plane’s pilot has been identified as Coleman, 47. Nicholson says that air traffic control at Eglin Air Force Base notified the sheriff’s department around 7:40 p.m. Tuesday that it had lost radio contact with a small plane. Nicholson says the small plane crashed in Choctawhatchee Bay, landing in about five feet of water about 200 yards from shore near the Destin Airport. The sheriff’s department marine unit responded, she says. Nicholson says the two passengers killed in the crash have been identified as Charlene Black Miller of College Station, Coleman’s mother-in-law, and James Patrick Black. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash, she says.
