LENEXA, Kan.—The Nevada Air Races were an annual tradition for a Johnson County family. Now, four members of the Elvin family are seriously injured and another still missing after Friday's tragic plane crash that killed at least nine people.
Lenexa resident Chuck Elvin, his sons Bill and Brian and Brian's wife were all seriously injured in Friday's crash, while Chuck Elvin's wife, Cherie, is still missing.
The four members of the Elvin family are still hospitalized in Nevada.
On Friday, a racing plane crashed into a group of spectators at the annual air races at an airport outside of Reno. Only two victims of the crash have been identified so far from what rescuers described as a grisly scene.
The Elvin's neighbors say that they'll support the family for as long as it takes.
"We're all pretty close down here. That's what's nice about the neighborhood. We all know each other pretty good and we all kind of watch over everybody here. I'm sure everyone will kick in and try to help Chuck as much as we can in this situation," said neighbor Tim Lambeth.
