Clarence Schollmeyer of North Dakota, 66, was identified as the pilot of a small aircraft that crashed early Thursday morning outside of San Marcos, TX.

One of the front seats from the aircraft lies in the foreground. The National Transportation Safety Board is conducting the investigation that will continue into Friday.
