Three Killed In Small Plane Crash, Aircraft Registered To Plant In Jacksonville

Three people were killed overnight when a small plane crashed on the King Ranch in South Texas.

The crash happened south of Armstrong in Kenedy County, about 60 miles south of Corpus Christi.

KLTV 7 has learned that the small plane was registered to "Joe Smith Plant Farm" in Jacksonville, TX.

A Kenedy County justice of the peace says air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane sometime just before 8pm last night. A Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter crew spotted the wreckage about an hour later.

No word yet on the identities of those aboard. Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are at the scene today.
