NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - One person is dead following a plane crash at the municipal airport in North Little Rock.

City spokesman Nathan Hamilton said one person died and a second person was hospitalized with unknown injuries when a Cessna 310 crashed about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

A Cessna 310 is a six-passenger, twin engine aircraft, according to Cessna’s website.

Police told reporters at the scene that after the plane crashed it hit a fuel tank by the Central Arkansas Water facility and firefighters were called to the scene.

A police spokesman did not immediately return a phone call to The Associated Press.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft was destroyed and that the FAA will begin an investigation that will be led by the National Transportation Safety Board.
