NC crash kills ex-White House photog Kightlinger
HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — A retired White House photographer who worked for five U.S. presidents and his wife were killed in a traffic accident on a North Carolina road.
A family member said Wednesday that 77-year-old Jack Kightlinger of Flat Rock and his 77-year-old wife, Adele, were killed in a two-car crash on Monday.
Kightlinger’s son-in-law Brad Fellrath of Charlotte said funeral arrangements were pending.
The Times-News of Hendersonville reported that the state Highway Patrol found an 18-year-old pickup truck driver crossed the center line and hit the Kightlingers’s car. A patrol spokeswoman said charges were pending Wednesday.
Kightlinger took behind-the-scenes photos of presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Ronald Reagan for 19 years through 1985.
