James Harlan, 57, and his son, Dylan Harlan, 15, killed in small-plane crash in Santa Rosa Valley in Ventura County, California
The crash of the single-engine Piper PA-28 Cherokee on Sunday afternoon killed the two people aboard. Although they were not identified, a Ventura County Sheriff’s office said they were a father, 57, and a son, 15, from nearby Calabasas.
Harlan’s single-engine Piper PA028 Cherokee “then began a 180-degree left turn, tracking back past the arena and to the northwest.” Harlan’s daughter said “she could see her brother in the front left seat as the airplane passed by,” the report stated.
Kirsten Doss, the mother of the late Dylan Harlan, and her daughter, who is herself now 15, filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against the estate of James Harlan as well as Alan Hermanson and Mark Johnson, identified in the complaint as owners along with the James Harlan estate of the Piper Cherokee that crashed near Moorpark on June 4, 2017.
