Four Oakley Residents Killed in Plane Crash

OAKLEY, Calif. (AP) - A candidate for Contra Costa County supervisor, a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer and their wives are being mourned after their single-engine plane crashed outside Las Vegas.

A BART spokesman says 37-year-old Erik Nunn, a candidate for District 5 supervisor from Oakley, was piloting the Piper Cherokee plane that crashed in flames Saturday afternoon about 40 miles from Las Vegas.

Spokesman Linton Johnson says Nunn and his wife, Tanya were returning to California after celebrating their 10th anniversary with their neighbors, 36-year-old Craig Wilson and his wife, Michele.

The Nunns had four children, ages 4 to 9, and the Wilsons had three children, 3 to 14.
