Co-Pilot Polehinke To Give Video Deposition In Plane Crash Case

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The co-pilot and lone survivor of a deadly
plane crash that killed 49 people will be interviewed later this
month by attorneys for families suing Comair.

According to a court filing in Lexington, James Polehinke is set
for a videotaped deposition on April 22. He'll give the deposition
from an undetermined spot near his home in Margate, Fla.

Polehinke lost a leg and sustained broken bones and brain damage
after Comair 5191 crashed near the Lexington airport while trying
to depart from a runway that was too short. Polehinke was at the
controls.

Until now, Polehinke has been medically unable to provide a
deposition. He also didn't speak to the National Transportation
Safety Board for its investigation into the crash.
