CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – Three people are dead after a small plane crash in Indiana. One of those individuals has been identified as Wayne Estopinal, a co-founder of Louisville City Football Club.

A Cessna Citation C525 belonging to Estopinal crashed in a heavily-wooded area in the 2300 block of Crone Road around 11:30 a.m., according to WAVE 3 News.

The aircraft is registered to Esto Air, LLC, a company managed by businessman Wayne Estopinal. Estopinal owns TEG Architecture firm, which has offices in Louisville and Jeffersonville.

Louisville City Football Club released a statement acknowledging that Estopinal was onboard.

“We at LouCity are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of club founder Wayne Estopinal. We would not be the club we are today without his innovation, leadership, and hard work, and his contributions to the community are something for which we are incredibly grateful. Our hearts are with Wayne’s family and loved ones at this time,” said LouCity President Brad Estes.

The plane left from Clark County, Indiana and was headed to Midway Airport in Chicago.
