Lawsuit Notice Filed In Owls Head Plane Crash

ROCKPORT - The family of a man killed in a plane crash at Owls Head airport has filed a two-million-dollar claim against Knox County.

Twenty-four-year-old Marcelo Rugini of Brazil was one of three University of Maine frat brothers killed November 6th.

Their Cessna 172 clipped a truck on the runway and crashed into the woods after takeoff.

The notice claims Rugini's death was caused by the county's failure to maintain adequate safety protocols at the airport.

The "notice of intent" opens a two-year-window in which an actual lawsuit may be filed.
