Police identified the four victims in a helicopter crash, including a husband and wife, in northern California on Monday.

Bill Vann, 67, the owner of an almond farm, and Susie Vann, 60, died in the crash with two friends, Bobbie Keaton, 62, and Charles Thomas Wilson, 71, according to local news station KCRA.

The Robinson R66 helicopter crashed around 1:15 p.m. in Colusa County north of Sacramento, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Preliminary reports indicate four people were on board,” the FAA said.

The five-seat helicopter can fly up to 14,000 feet high and carry 2,700 pounds, according to the manufacturer’s website.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, the FAA told the DCNF. (RELATED: 3 National Guard Members Killed In New York Helicopter Crash)
