Florida plane crash survivor’s family says he was too drunk to talk


— Family members of a Michigan man who survived an airplane crash that killed two of his friends are calling for a new investigation into whether he was intoxicated when he was killed.

A Michigan State Police spokeswoman said Thursday that the trooper in charge of the investigation was notified Thursday that a passenger who was a passenger in a plane crash in Vermont, Michigan, was intoxicated.

A second person on the plane, a passenger from Vermont who survived, is also in the hospital, the spokeswoman said.

Authorities are still investigating what caused the plane to hit a house and the two people who survived.

The crash occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 5.

The plane’s pilot, Richard Loomis, was a former pilot for Delta Airlines.
