Racer dies in air crash
A race-car driver and another person reportedly died when their small plane crashed in a wooded area near New Haven, Conn., on Saturday.
The death of racer Ted Christopher, 59, was confirmed by his family, the Hartford Courant said.
The other victim was not immediately identified.
Christopher was the alltime winningest driver at both Stafford Motor Speedway and Thompson Speedway, the newspaper said.
It was not clear who had been piloting the plane, a single-engine Mooney.
The bodies were found by three hikers. One reported seeing a body that had apparently been thrown from the plane.
