Sheriff: Pilot dies in small plane crash

PLANO – Kendall County authorities say a longtime Elgin attorney has died after his small plane crashed in Plano.

The wife of 80-year-old John E. Juergensmeyer told the Daily Herald in Arlington Heights that her husband was piloting the plane when it crashed around 8 p.m. Sunday in unincorporated Plano.

Betty Juergensmeyer says her husband was returning from visiting his older brother at a nursing home in Carlinville.

The Federal Aviation Administration and Illinois State Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
