Police have identified a passenger in a plane that crashed Monday along Route 50 in Maryland as Deborah Tucker of Alexandria.
Tucker, 48, and two others were seriously injured when the plane had trouble after takeoff at Freeway Airport and crashed in Bowie.
State police told The Associated Press that 58-year-old Tivay Alireza of Washington was the pilot and owner of the four-seat Mooney model M20 aircraft. His passengers were Tucker and 45-year-old Seth Sharpe of Laurel, MD, the AP reported.
When police arrived on the scene, they removed Tucker from the plane, and she was transported to Prince George's County Hospital Center via ambulance to be treated for her injuries.
