Info is still coming in, but Reuters, AP and WNBC are saying that the small plane that crashed into an Upper East Side building at 2:45 p.m. today was owned by Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle and he was on the plane. His passport was found on the street.
Details to follow.
UPDATE: Lidle's Wikipedia page is changing each minute. Go to the page and keep hitting the refresh button. Someone even found a picture of him with his plane. Wow.
