Orange resident survives plane crash

Authorities say a man from Orange is the lone survivor of a plane crash that took place in upstate New York over the weekend.



Authorities say Jason Klein was involved in the crash Saturday at Hogan Airport near Albany. Three others on board all died, including Major League Baseball executive Susan Hilgefort and her husband.



A spokesperson from Klein's company says he is being treated for burn injuries at Westchester Medical Center in New York. Klein was flying back home after a gathering with friends and family, according to the spokesperson.



Klein's company says the crash is currently being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board and the New York State Police.
