Investigation Continues Following Fatal Crop Duster Crash

Investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration continue to examine the wreckage from a fatal crop-duster crash.

It happened Thursday morning near County Road 183 in Crosbyton. The plane is thought to have clipped a wind tower before it went down. Fifty-five year old Bill Tidwell of Ransom Canyon died in the crash. Tidwell is a father of two who operated his own business, McAdoo flying service.

"He was a real, the best friend I ever had. He'd give the shirt off his back if that's what you needed. He's going to be missed by a lot of people," Tidwell's friend, Donnie Wheeless said.

Services for Bill Tidwell are pending. We'll bring you that information as it becomes available.
