MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say a small plane crashed in central Minnesota, killing one person.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office said the plane went down Saturday morning in the Crow-Hassan Park Reserve, about 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis.

Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson said in a statement one occupant was found dead at the scene.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Rob Allen said he could not confirm if anyone else was on board.

The National Transportation Safety Board tweeted it was investigating the crash. The agency said the plane was a single-engine Beech A36.
