POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - Federal investigators have determined that a plane crash near Cody that killed four people last year was likely caused by a failed engine.

An April report from the National Transportation Safety Board says the pilot, 66-year-old Don Scott from Denver, likely lost control of the Cessna when its left engine lost power on July 18, 2015. The board was not able to determine what caused the engine to fail.

The Powell Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1P2FSdg) that Scott, his friend Joyce Bartoo from Washington, D.C., his sister 68-year-old Diane Jean Stubbs and her 69-year-old husband Gerald Bruce Stubbs, both from Annapolis, Maryland, died in the crash.

Scott had been flying from Sheridan to Billings when the plane went down in a wooded area northwest of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and caught fire.
