Lafayette residents,┬áPeter and Mona┬áBranagh, were killed in a plane crash Saturday in Utah.
The couple took off Saturday in a small, private plane from Danville headed for Aspen, Colo., but when the plane never arrived, a helicopter was sent out to locate it. On Sunday, the helicopter located the wreckage of the plane in a canyon in┬áSevier County, Utah.
California Bank of Commerce, where Peter worked as the Director, confirmed the couple had been killed in the crash.
The Branaghs were most notably known in the community for developments and improvements done through Peter’s development firm, including the Hidden Oaks housing development in Lafayette.
