Two firefighters from Madison County were killed after two small planes crashed at an airport in Grant County Monday evening. The crash happened just after 5 p.m. at the Marion Municipal Airport off State Road 9 in Marion. Grant County Coroner Chris Butche says a smaller plane clipped a larger plane that was landing. The smaller plane then crashed and caught fire, killing the pilot and a passenger. Butche identified the victims as pilot Kyle Hibst, 31, and David Wittkamper, 31. Both men are from Elwood and were members of the Pipe Creek Township Volunteer Fire Department.
