Federal investigators are continuing to look into the crash of a sky diving plane in Cushing over the weekend that killed the pilot and injured two others.

37-year-old Stephen Hill of Burbank, California was killed in the wreck of the Cessna Skylane 182. Officials say the injured skydivers are identified as Glenn Miller of Noble. He's in serious condition with numerous broken bones. Also Shelly York of Norman. She's in critical condition with head injuries. Both of them went down with the plane.

Three other skydivers on board jumped to safety before the plane crashed. The man who parachuted first says the pilot has since told him that six people were too many for that kind of plane.
