      Three Michigan men die in Minnesota plane crash

      Minnesota authorities have identified the three Michigan men who died when their small plane crashed in a field near an airport in southeastern Minnesota.

      The Houston County sheriff's department identified the victims Saturday as 79-year-old Joel Alan Garrett of Troy, Michigan, 49-year-old Dale Edward Garrett of Berkley, Michigan, and 50-year-old John Paul Bergeron of Birmingham, Michigan.

      A fourth person was injured in the crash. His condition was not immediately available.

      Authorities say the men's twin-engine Piper PA-23 was traveling Friday from Troy to Minnesota on Friday when it crashed in Caledonia, Minnesota, about 4:30 p.m.

      The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
