Conditions for three members of a Boise, Idaho family injured in a weekend Utah plane crash had improved on Monday, with all now expected to survive.
West Jordan Police Sgt. Dan Roberts said the pilot, 56-year-old Steven Sedlacea, and his wife, Kathleen Sedlacea, 57, were in critical condition but had been stabilized. Their daughter, Anna Looper, 28, had been upgraded to serious condition.
The family's aircraft took off from South Valley Regional Airport about 9 a.m. Sunday but crashed soon after in a soccer field near 8000 S. 4570 West. Roberts said the family likely owed their lives to witnesses who saw the crash and rushed to pull the three from the wreckage before it burst into flames.
