WEST JORDAN, Utah — The woman, Mary Quintana, 72, who was home when a small plane crashed into her house in West Jordan has died from her injuries, according to police.

The names of the victims and their conditions were released by the West Jordan Police Department on Sunday via Twitter.

The pilot was a 43-year-old named Lee Wyckoff who died in the crash as did nine-month-old Coral Wyckoff and 36-year-old Milda Shibonis.
