The pilot of a small plane that burst into flames after crashing at Teterboro Airport last month has died from his injuries. George Maddox of Sinking Spring, Pa., died Friday at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, said his wife, Lisa Roach Maddox. He and the co-pilot, Sanil Gopinath of Laurel, Md., suffered severe burns in the Aug. 21 crash, and Gopinath remains hospitalized.

    Authorities have said the 54-year-old Maddox was piloting the twin-engine Beechcraft Baron, which crashed into a tree and sign after an aborted landing. However, his wife says he wasn't at the controls at the time of the crash.

    The plane was carrying blood and urine specimens for Quest Diagnostics, a testing firm with an office near the Bergen County airport.

    The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
