The victims included Ginny Doyle and Natalie Lewis, who worked for the Lady Spiders’ basketball program. Pilot Dan Kirk also died after the balloon crashed to earth Friday night near Doswell. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are also investigating the crash.
