A Hickory man was one of two killed in a weekend plane crash in Louisiana.   The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office told WSOC-TV news that 61-year-old James F. Miller of Gretna, and 42-year-old Lt. Col. Wendell Lee Collins, of Hickory, N.C., were killed. A preliminary Federal Aviation Administration report on the accident says the single-engine airplane, which was registered to Miller, veered off the runway and hit some trees as it was taking off from the small private airport at Ama, La. Sgt. Dwayne Lagrange, a sheriff's spokesman, said Collins was an ROTC instructor at Tulane University in New Orleans. The accident is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.
