INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Relatives of 68 people who died in a 1994 commuter plane crash in northwestern Indiana are raising money to build a permanent memorial near the crash site they hope to dedicate on next year's 20th anniversary of the crash.
The new memorial would replace a simple roadside memorial garden with 68 crosses that's long stood near the remote field where American Eagle flight 4184 crashed on Oct. 31, 1994, after ice accumulated on the plane's wings.
Jennifer Stansberry Miller of Fishers, Ind., says the cross display is "very makeshift" and crash victims' relatives want a permanent memorial in place before the 20th anniversary.
Miller's 27-year-old brother Brad was among those killed when the turboprop crashed during a flight from Indianapolis to Chicago.
Thursday marks the crash's 19th anniversary.
