MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- Fifty-five year-old Richard George Bath is dead after his plane crashed Friday in Milledgeville, Georgia. According to authorities Bath apparently did not see a clump of trees because of heavy fog and mist. The Dexter, Missouri man's single-engine plane crashed in a clearing across from the Baldwin County airport landing strip. A coroner said that Bath died instantly.
