ARCANUM, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say two people have died in a small plane’s crash into a field in rural western Ohio.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the crash was reported early afternoon Wednesday in Arcanum, which is some 35 miles northwest of Dayton. FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro says the plane was a single-engine Piper PA-11 aircraft and that it crashed under unknown circumstances.
Melissa Hawes of the Darke County Sheriff’s office says both people aboard died. She didn’t have any other details to release immediately.
Authorities are investigating.
