Investigators today are looking into a fatal plane crash this past weekend.  Monday, emergency crews were able to reach the wreckage in a rugged part of northeastern Oregon near Ukiah. Umatilla County Emergency Management officials say that three people were killed in the crash. They've been identified as Janice Davis, 51, of Hermiston, Oregon and Ned Kayser, 53, and Gerald Hunter, 74, both of Klickitat County, Washington. County spokesperson Jodi Florence says the plane took off on Saturday: “They took off from Dallesport Washington, which is an airport near the Dalles, Oregon. It's just on the other side of the Columbia River, and they were headed to Wyoming."  The terrain is so rugged the forest service had to cut roads so that rescuers could get to the crash sight. Florence says this is the second plane crash the Umatilla County Emergency crews have assisted with this year.
