Crop duster probably never saw tower he crashed into

An NTSB preliminary report says a crop duster pilot probably never saw the steel tower that caused his fatal crash.

Stephen Allen died after his plane clipped the tower and went down on Jan. 10 near Oakley.

If the 198-foot tower were just two feet taller, the FAA would have required orange and white stripes and lighting.

The tower was placed there to study whether the location was a good place for wind turbines.
