A plane crash near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on Sunday took the lives of three married couples from Oxford. Four of the six passengers were dentists, and they were traveling back from a dental conference in Florida when their 1984 Piper PA-31 crashed just east of the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport. Each of the couples had children. They were also well known in the community.
