ELY, NV - We now know the names of the victims in a Nevada plane crash over the weekend.

Jerry Nothman and his wife Corrine were both 82. They died along with their dog when the single-engine Piper PA31 crashed about 10AM Saturday, 17 miles southeast of Ely.

They lived in Mesa, Arizona, and they were headed to Oregon. Mr. Nothman was the pilot.

No word yet what caused the crash, but the White Pine County sheriff says the weather wasn't bad, and one witness says the plane just plunged into the ground.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
