Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google, is being sued after a deadly plane crash off the coast of Half Moon Bay.

The pilot, Lance MacLean, was flying from Santa Rosa to Fiji last May in a plane that Brin owns.

The plane went down off the San Mateo County coast, killing MacLean and his co-pilot.

MacLean's widow is filing a wrongful death suit in Santa Clara County Superior Court, naming Brin and Google, because the company was part owner of the plane, which was first reported by Bloomberg. 

Investigators suspect a problem with the plane's fuel tanks caused the plane to crash.

Bloomberg reports that Brin and representatives for Google didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
