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 while 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 northwest of Cincinnati, Ohio.
The cause of the crash wasn't immediately known. Wheeles says the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board also are investigating.
The names of the victims were not immediately released.
