ADA, Okla. (AP) — Two people have been killed in the crash of a small plane in southern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the single-engine Beechcraft Debonair crashed at about 3:30 a.m. on Friday in a wooded area about 12 miles southwest of Ada. Killed in the crash were two Ada residents, 35-year-old pilot Derrick Sutherland and 30-year-old passenger Dakota Abbott.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will seek a cause for the crash. Still, OHP Trooper Alan Fortner says rain and fog shrouded the area at the time.
