A single engine DeHavilland DHC-3T carrying former Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens crashed in southwest Alaska. The plane had nine people aboard, and at least five were killed. There are conflicting reports about Stevens' condition: CBS News reports, "A family friend told an NBC affiliate in Alaska that Stevens had been killed, but later said that the senator's death was not confirmed." Also on the plane, owned by Alaskan telecom GCI, was former NASA chief Sean O'Keefe. An NTSB "Go Team" is on the way to investigate the crash; the "Go Team" looks at "high profile" crashes.
