WALHALLA, S.C. -- Authorities say all four people who died in a plane crash were from Indiana.
 
The men were flying from Warsaw, Indiana, to Clemson, South Carolina, to attend Saturday's Notre Dame-Clemson game.
 
Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis identified the men who died Friday afternoon as: 71-year-old Charles D. Smith; his son, 44-year-old Scott A. Smith; 54-year-old Tony L. Elliott; and 51-year-old Scott D. Bibler.
 
Elliott was a former sprint car driver, while the elder Smith was a Warsaw councilman and former high school football coach. Bibler also used to coach high school football. Scott Smith was an attorney.
 
Several members of the racing community reacted to the death of Elliott. 
 

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Berger said the wreckage of the Piper PA-32 was found near Lake Hartwell on the Georgia-South Carolina border.

 
Authorities have not yet given a cause for the crash.
