3 people die in a small plane crash in southeastern Indiana

OLDENBURG, Ind. (AP) — State police say three people have died in a small plane crash in southeastern Indiana.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles says the crash of the single-engine Cessna plane near Oldenburg, Indiana, also killed one dog aboard the craft. A second dog survived.

Wheeles says the plane was traveling from Kansas City, Missouri, to Frederick, Maryland, and had taken off from an airport outside Columbus, Indiana, before crashing about 9 p.m. Saturday in a wooded area about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northwest of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Wheeles says the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board also are investigating the cause of the crash.

The names of the victims haven’t been released.
