According to a North Carolina sheriff, two people suffered fatal personal injuries in a small plane crash in a field near a rural airport.
Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown said the Albert J. Ellis Airport in Richlands was not damaged in the crash, but he did not have further details available and the crash remained under investigation.
The identities of the victims were not immediately made available, pending notification of next of kin.
According to Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters, the single-engine plane involved in the crash was registered to Waterbury Center, Vermont resident Peter Hebert. He said the plane had reported a loss of fuel pressure to controllers at the Wilmington, N.C. airport shortly before the crash.
Peters said the crash would likely be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board, due to fatalities being involved.
