WIKIEUP, Ariz. -- A Bakersfield, Calif., woman was killed and her husband and son injured in the crash of their single-engine plane in Arizona.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office identified the woman as 49-year-old Josephine Simos Chan and said she was a passenger in the plane.

The aircraft crashed Thursday about 40 miles southeast of Kingman.

The plane was flown by 48-year-old Vidson Chan.

The couple's son, 13-year-old Cody William Chan, called 911 with his cellphone to get help after the crash.
