The woman who died in a plane crash Saturday night in Denton has been identified as Jennifer Lunow of Saginaw.

Lunow, 35, died when a single-engine plane piloted by her husband crashed in a field about a half-mile north of Denton Enterprise Airport.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office said Lunow died from blunt force trauma to the head and spine in the crash.

Lunow’s husband and child were taken to Denton Regional Medical Center with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

The incident is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety board and is under review by the Federal Aviation Administration, officials said. The family was flying from Arkansas to Hicks Airfield in north Fort Worth when they began having mechanical problems and tried to make an emergency landing just west of Denton, officials said.
