GREENWOOD, Ind.-- A pilot killed when a small plane crashed in an Indianapolis suburb has been identified as a top executive at a nationwide mall developer.
Johnson County coroner Craig A. Lutz tells The Indianapolis Star that the pilot was 46-year-old William Michael Gilliland of Greenwood. The Star says Gilliland was a vice president at Simon Property Group.
An autopsy on Gilliland was scheduled for Saturday.
Media outlets say the co-pilot has been identified as Michael Joseph Elliott of Tarpon Springs, Florida. A spokeswoman said Elliott was in critical condition at Indiana University Methodist Hospital Saturday afternoon.
Officials say both men were in a single-engine airplane that lost power moments after taking off from a small central Indiana airport Friday, struck two homes and crashed in Greenwood, just south of Indianapolis.
