WAUKESHA COUNTY (WSLS 10) – We are learning new details this afternoon about a small plane crash in Wisconsin that killed a Virginia man.

The Waukesha County medical examiner says 41-year-old Cory Papenfuss, from Dublin, died during that crash.

Papenfuss had worked for Virginia Tech since 2006. He completed his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Tech in that same year.

Police say Papenfuss, his wife and their six-month-old son were on-board.

She is in critical condition, but the infant is okay.

Investigators say the plane crashed into a parked SUV and trailer as it took off from an airport outside of Milwaukee.
