Katherine Bronken, 15, and her father Jeffrey Bronken, 53, were on their way to Clearwater with Katherine's friend Keyana Linbo, 15, when the plane Jeffrey Bronken was piloting clipped a wire and crashed onto the median.

The crash happened at about 4 a.m. about six miles north of where they had planned to land at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport.
