Crash inquiry could take a year

LIHUE » National Transportation Safety Board investigators say it could take up to a year to determine the cause of a hang glider crash off Kauai last February in which two people died.

A NTSB spokesman said Wednesday that investigation of the crash that killed pilot Jim Gaither and passenger Kim Buer­gel of Spokane, Wash., would likely take 12 months. The powered glider showed substantial damage when it hit the water off Kauai's south shore, according to a preliminary report.

Fuddy was also chief of the department's Family Health Serv­ices Division. Topping has been a human resources manager, mostly in high-technology businesses.
