    ABBEVILLE COUNTY — Two people who died in a plane crash at Lake Russell were identified Sunday by Abbeville County authorities.

    The pilot was Jimmy W. Cash, 66, of Maryville, Tenn., and his passenger was Lance Justin Davis, 30, of Knoxville, Tenn., said James Ashley, Abbeville County coroner.

    The single-engine Cessna plane flew out of Maryville Saturday and crashed about 11 a.m. into Lake Russell, authorities said.

    There were only two people in the plane. Both men were flying to Georgia for a gun show, he said.

    An autopsy was completed at AnMed Health Medical Center Sunday morning and the cause of death for both men is blunt-force trauma, Ashley said.

    Sgt. David Metler of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office said Davis was a reserve deputy sheriff with the department for about a year. Metler said Davis was easygoing and very likeable. He will be missed, he said.

    “He was someone who always had a smile on his face,” Metler said. “He was a very nice guy.”

    He said he heard about the fatal crash from a colleague Saturday night.

    The Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office removed the plane from the lake Saturday night and it is currently in the office’s compound, Ashley said. The official cause of the crash is still under investigation, he said.

    The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources was among the agencies that responded to the scene near Harpers Ferry Landing and the Rocky River in Abbeville County.

    Multiple dive teams and other emergency crews from Anderson and Abbeville counties responded and contained 30 gallons to 40 gallons of aviation fuel that spilled out of the plane, said Lt. Robert McCullough of the Department of Natural Resources.

    The plane is registered to James G. Clift of Knoxville, Tenn., according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The plane flew out of Maryville, Tenn., Saturday.
