UTAH – We have tragic news to report involving the shocking death of a Republican Senator

North Dakota State Senator Doug Larsen, his wife Amy, and their two young children were killed after the small plane they were in crashed outside Moab, Utah.

Larsen, a Republican, was piloting the single-engine plane that crashed almost immediately after taking off.

The small plane they were traveling in crashed after stopping to refuel, according to reports.

The tragic incident was confirmed by Republican Senate Majority Leader David Hogue.

“Senator Doug Larsen, his wife Amy, and their two young children died in a plane crash last evening in Utah,” Hogue wrote in his email.

“They were visiting family in Scottsdale and returning home. They stopped to refuel in Utah.”

“I’m not sure where the bereavement starts with such a tragedy, but I think it starts with prayers for the grandparents, surviving stepchild of Senator Larsen, and extended family of Doug and Amy,” Hogue wrote.

“Hold your family close today.”

A bouquet of roses was draped over Larsen’s desk in the Senate chamber, just above the nameplate that reads: “D. Larsen – District 34.”

“Larsen has been a state senator for North Dakota’s 34th district since 2021,” KFYR stated.

“On behalf of the NDGOP, we extend our heartfelt sympathy to the Larsen family.”

“Senator Doug Larsen was a man of faith and a patriot who served in the National Guard.”

“His voice will be missed in the North Dakota Senate,” the North Dakota Republican Party said in a statement.

According to a statement from the Grand County Sheriff’s Department, the plane crashed shortly after departing from Canyonlands Airfield, north of Moab, Utah.

The sheriff’s office reported that all four individuals on board the plane were killed.

Initially, the FAA incident report stated three people including the pilot were killed and one was seriously injured.

According to an FAA incident report, a plane carrying four people crashed during takeoff in Moab, Utah Sunday night.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office reports that at 8:30 p.m. local time, it responded to a plane crash at Canyonlands Airfield north of Moab.

*****UPDATE 00:17 HOURS*****
Rescue efforts were completed.

Four occupants unfortunately did not survive the crash.

Further information will be provided as soon as family members have been notified.

We will update this post as we gather more information

According to FAA records, the plane, a 1966 Piper PA28, was registered to Douglas Larsen of Mandan, North Dakota.

The crash of the single-engine Piper plane was being investigated, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a social media post.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, Keith Holloway, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said by email, noting that an investigator had arrived on Monday to examine the aircraft, request traffic communication and check for witnesses.

Mr. Larsen’s flight history and medical records will also be checked, he said.

Public records show that Mr. Larsen was last registered in June to fly the single-engine plane, a Piper Cherokee PA-28-140.

Larsen was a Republican first elected to the North Dakota Senate in 2020. His district comprises Mandan and he chaired a Senate panel that handled industry and business legislation. He and his wife, Amy, were business owners.

Larsen served 29 years in the North Dakota Army National Guard. He mobilized twice, to Iraq from 2009-10 and to Washington, D.C., from 2013-14, according to Gov. Doug Burgum’s office. He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, Bronze Service Star and Army Aviator Badge among other honors.

Republican state Sen. Scott Meyer, who sat behind Larsen in the Senate, remembered him for his unique and dry sense of humor, candor on issues and passion for flying.

He recalled a Saturday afternoon in the Senate chamber when Larsen talked with fellow senators for roughly an hour about flying planes and working on his private pilot’s license.

“He was passionate about flying. He really was,” Meyer said.

District Republicans will appoint a successor to fill out the remainder of Larsen’s term, through November 2024.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends, colleagues and the people of North Dakota.
