6 remain in critical condition after NV air crash

Six people remain in critical condition at hospitals after the Reno air race crash that killed nine people.

Seven people also are listed in serious condition on Sunday and 10 are either in fair or good condition. Officials say 69 people were treated at hospitals, including 46 who have been released.

The crash Friday afternoon killed the pilot, Jimmy Leeward, and eight spectators.

Investigators say several onlookers were killed on impact as the 1940s-model plane appeared to lose a piece of its tail before slamming like a missile into the first few rows of VIP box seats.
