Two people were killed in a small plane crash in central California were a doctor from Springfield and his father from Omaha, Nebraska. 

The FAA says a Cessna 421 was flying from Salinas, California to Omaha, 
Nebraska when it went down in the mountains northeast of Fresno Saturday night.

Authorities told the Fresno Bee that the coroner's office had not notified the 
men's relatives, but family members identified them to KYTV in Springfield.

KY3 is reporting they were 41-year-old Scott Clarke, a doctor at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, 
and his 67-year-old father, Patrick, a prominent businessman in Omaha.

The plane crashed upside down near Shaver Lake, an alpine lake in California's 
Sierra National Forrest.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the 
crash Sunday.
