One of the passengers in the Westmoreland plane crash has died from his injuries.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Department says James Kasperski age 76, a passenger in the plane, passed away as a result of his injuries while at SUNY Upstate Medical.

John Balio of Frankfort, who was piloting the plane remains in critical condition. The other passenger, Amanda Odell, of Rome, has been released from the hospital.

Oneida County Sheriff's Undersheriff Robert Swenszkowski tells WKTV, "It appeared the plane touched down at a local air strip, took back off and then crashed."

The FAA and the NTSB are continuing to investigate the crash.
