The Kansas Highway Patrol says a doctor died in the crash of a small plane in western Kansas.
The patrol says the plane went down Saturday evening in a field in Greeley County, about 11 miles west of Tribune.
The pilot, 63-year-old Dr. Randall Fahrenholtz of Tribune, died at a hospital. No one else was on board the plane. He worked for Greeley County Health Systems.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Fahrenholtz graduated from Sterling College in 1972 and graduated from the University of Kansas Medical School in Kansas City and Wichita in 1975.
