MACK, Colo. ” Two men killed when a plane crashed near Baxter Pass in Garfield County on Sunday died from multiple injuries sustained when their aircraft went down.

The Mesa County Coroner’s Office performed autopsies on the bodies 60-year-old Charles Landry of Houston and 50-year-old Steven Bartlett of Green River, Wyo., for Garfield County officials.
