4 killed when small plane crashes in Indiana

GREENSBURG, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say four people died when a small plane crashed as it was approaching a southeastern Indiana airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the crash happened Sunday evening about a mile south of the Greensburg Municipal Airport and that all those on board were killed. The FAA says the plane had been cleared to approach the airport but then never arrived.

Greensburg police Detective Bill Meyerrose says emergency dispatchers received a 911 call about 6:15 p.m. about a possible crash. The wreckage was found about 10:45 p.m. where the plane had crashed through a tree line and ended up in a farm field in the area about 40 miles southeast of Indianapolis.

The single-engine Piper is registered to a Greensburg man but authorities didn't immediately release information about the victims.
