Porter, 19, had not yet declared a major but was in the College of Arts and Science. He was from Independence and would have been a sophomore. He graduated from William Chrisman High School and played alto saxophone in Marching Mizzou.

Passenger Sean Radcliff died at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa on Monday afternoon.

Radcliff also played alto sax in Marching Mizzou and was a music education major at MU.

Passenger Ryan Iadanza was taken to Muskogee Regional Medical Center in stable condition on Sunday. Hospital officials said he was released Monday.

Iadanza is also a music major who plays clarinet in the band.

The Muskogee Phoenix is reporting that the crash occurred at about 8:30 p.m.
