Friends say goodbye after Tallapoosa County plane crash survivor dies

DALE CO., AL, (WSFA) - Friends and family said goodbye Friday to 67-year-old David Currier in Daleville. Currier was the pilot of a small plane that crashed on March 28 in Tallapoosa County.

Currier survived the crash but was hospitalized for significant injuries. He died last weekend. The pilot's wife, 66-year-old Jeannette Currier, died at the scene.

The crash happened in a densely wooded area near the industrial business park.

It could take FAA officials a year to determine what caused the crash but early reports indicate engine failure.

The Curriers were on their way to Tennessee when their plane went down.
