Two members of the University of Richmond’s women’s basketball team coaching staff were on board a hot air balloon that caught fire and exploded after hitting a power line in Easter Virginia Friday night.

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports that Ginny Doyle, the associate head coach of the UR women’s basketball team, and Natalie Lewis, the team’s director of basketball operations, were on passenger manifests for balloon flights on Friday.

A spokeswoman for Ms. Lewis’ family confirmed that she was on board the balloon that crashed.

The Washington Post identified Ms. Doyle as the second passenger.

Police in Caroline County have found two bodies so far but have yet to identify them.
