A second victim was found by investigators late Friday night after a small airplane crashed near Poolville in Parker County earlier in the day.

The pilot, identified Saturday as Michael S. Clark II, 44, of Weatherford, was pronounced dead shortly after emergency responders made it to the wreck shortly before 5 p.m. Friday, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

The second victim is Steven L. Midence, 40, of Houston, the DPS said.

A Facebook page that appears to belong to Clark says he was married and possibly a father.

The crash is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, according to the DPS. Officials have not said what caused the crash.
