2 people die in crash of Md. plane

A federal spokeswoman says two people on board a plane traveling from Maryland to Mississippi were killed when the aircraft went down in eastern Kentucky.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac told the Associated Press that investigators were at the scene "at first light" Wednesday, looking into what caused the crash.

Salac says the plane went down about 30 miles from Hazard, in a mountainous area of Leslie County on Tuesday.

FAA records list the Hawker Beechcraft 58 as registered to Island Trading Ltd. of Woodbine, Md. Salac said the plane was traveling from Frederick to Olive Branch, Miss.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Kentucky State Police are also investigating the crash.
