Off-road racer Rick Huseman among three killed in plane crash
Professional off-road racer Rick Huseman was among three killed when a small plane crashed before it could attempt an emergency landing in Barstow.
The Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft, which was traveling from North Las Vegas to Corona, crashed Sunday afternoon about five miles from the Barstow-Doggett airport, authorities said.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department had not identified the three passengers aboard the plane, but Huseman's website carried a message saying Huseman and his brother, Jeff, were killed in the crash.
Friends and fans left condolence messages on Huseman's Facebook page, which credits his "winning attitude and an innovative approach to his racing strategy" for his success, including several championships.
