NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration says a small plane has crashed in Nebraska and preliminary reports indicate that the two people aboard had died.
An FAA spokesman, Lynn Lunsford, told The Associated Press by telephone that a Piper PA-28 crashed late Saturday evening near the city of Norfolk and that he received initial reports from a local sheriff's office of two dead.
A dispatcher with the sheriff's department in Nebraska's Madison County said it had no immediate information to release early Sunday and would not confirm any deaths with AP.
Lunsford, in a statement early Sunday, says it's unclear what led to the crash. The statement says investigators from the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board would travel to the site later Sunday.
