Pilot dies from injuries sustained in Missouri airshow crash
CAMERON (AP) - Authorities say a biplane pilot injured during a crash at a northwest Missouri airshow has died from his injuries.
The Cameron Police Department announced the death of 50-year-old Steven O'Berg of Smithville in a news release Sunday. O'Berg was injured when his Pitts biplane crashed around 1:50 p.m. Saturday during a performance at the Cameron Airshow. Police said he was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The release said his family is asking for privacy to "grieve their loss."
A posting on the Cameron Airshow's Facebook site said the full show would be performed Sunday, describing it as a way to "celebrate life." The posting also thanked emergency responders for the quick response to Saturday afternoon's crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration say they are investigating.
