    Plane Crash Kills 5 Ind. Music Students

    By DEANNA MARTIN, Associated Press

    An Indiana University student was piloting a small plane through dense fog when the aircraft crashed, killing the four passengers and fellow classmates, officials said Friday.

    The five graduate students in the university's school of music were returning from a rehearsal for a community concert in West Lafayette, about 90 miles north of campus, when the plane disappeared from radar about 11:40 p.m. Thursday.

    Georgina H. Joshi, who had studied at the Royal College of Music in London and sung in Wales, piloted the single-engine Cessna.

    Investigators said they did not immediately know how much flying experience Joshi had.

    In addition to Joshi, 24, of South Bend, the students who died in the crash were identified as Zachary J. Novak, 25, of Anderson; Robert Clayton Samels, 24, of Medina, Ohio; Garth A. Eppley, 25, of Wabash, Ind.; and Chris Bates Carducci, 27, of Monroe, Mich.
