Two People Killed in Henderson Plane Crash

Henderson authorities are investigating a small fixed-wing aircraft crash near the airport in Henderson, Kentucky. According to the Henderson County coroner, two people were aboard the plane when it crashed and killed them both.

Investigators believe that the airplane crashed about 50 yards off the side of the runway leaving very minimal to no debris field. Investigators speculate the plane crashed last night or sometime early Wednesday morning.

The runway is temporarily shut down as investigators work to gather more information.

Authorities say it’s too early to make a positive identification on both victims but an autopsy is scheduled tomorrow in Madisonville.

No one else was injured nor was any property damage reported.
