WOODLAND, Wash. (AP) - The man who died in a small plane crash north of Portland, Oregon, Thursday has been identified.

The Cowlitz County Coroner’s Office identified 56-year-old Marc Sebastian Messina, of Renton, as the man who died.

Officials say two others were injured in the crash in which the single-engine Mooney M20K drove off the end of the runway, through a fence and up an embankment. Officials haven’t released the names or conditions of those injured.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/f8V4fE ) the plane is registered to a Woodinville corporation and was bound for Renton.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the plane crashed under unknown circumstances. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.

Woodland is about 30 miles north of Portland, Oregon.
