Girl Hurt in Plane Crash Leaves Hospital



    An 11-year-old girl whose mother and brother died when their small plane hit a San Diego golf course has been released from the hospital.

    Summer Crane was released Tuesday, Rady Children's Hospital spokesman Carlos Delgado said. Her 10-year-old sister, Tia Crane, remained hospitalized in serious condition along with their father, Gregory Crane.

    Gregory Crane was piloting the plane when it crashed at Admiral Baker Golf course on Aug. 2.

    Crane called the Montgomery Field control tower shortly after takeoff to report that he was unable to close a door in the aircraft and planned to return to the airport for an emergency landing. The control tower then lost contact with the plane.
