Four dead after small plane crash in Barren County, Kentucky

A small plane in Glasgow, Kentucky crashed Sunday afternoon, killing four passengers.

Three people were killed at the scene, and a fourth victim died at a hospital in Bowling Green, Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeremy Hodges told the Bowling Green Daily News. They are awaiting the arrival of the FAA.

Authorities described the wreckage as "mangled" with a field of debris up to 200 feet wide.

Hodges described the state of the plane, saying it looks to have hit some tree tops before being halted by one of the trees.

Police put the scene on lockdown until an FAA crew arrives Monday morning, he said. The Barren County Coroner is on scene. The plane, a Piper PA32, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, struck multiple trees in a wooded area. No details or names of the victims in today's crash have been released to the press.
