An emergency room doctor from Bergen County, N.J., was killed Wednesday when his plane crashed while he was commuting to a hospital in Upstate New York.
Dr. Michael Lippe of Mahwah, N.J., an experienced pilot, was apparently alive after his single engine plane crashed in Barrington, N.Y., but he died of massive head trauma sustained during the accident, according to press reports.
Lippe had taken off from Essex County Airport in Fairfield, N.J., at roughly 6:40 p.m., en route to Finger Lakes Health hospital in Geneva, N.Y. His plane crashed at 7:50 p.m. when he hit some treetops while flying through sleet and freezing rain.
