Family Of Woman Killed In Plane Crash Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The parents of an Instagram model who was killed in a plane crash last April have filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Las Vegas.

Mariah Sunshine Coogan was among six people killed in the crash that occurred in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2018.

The plane was headed for the North Las Vegas Airport.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the lawsuit alleges a student pilot from Las Vegas and a pilot trainer violated federal aviation regulations and operated the plane in a careless manner.

The student pilot had cocaine in his system, according to a report from the Maricopa County Medical examiner.

A National Transportation Safety Board preliminary accident report does not list a cause of the crash.
