Sheriff: 3 dead in Glencoe plane crash


A local sheriff said three adults have died in the crash of a small plane in Glencoe.

McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann said the single-engine plane went down in a field about four miles north of Glencoe and broke apart. No one survived, he said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the crash was reported at 11:12 a.m. Wednesday. Rehmann said witnesses reported hearing a popping noise and then the impact of the plane crashing.

Rehmann said all three victims were adults. Names of the victims have not been released, the Associated Press said.

Authorities said they don't believe the victims were from the Glencoe area, WCCO said.

The National Transportation Safety Board also is expected to investigate, the sheriff said.

Doug Hanneman, editor of the Hutchinson Leader, who was at the scene, said wreckage was scattered over a couple hundred yards in the field, the Pioneer Press said.

Hanneman said local firefighters extinguished the burning wreckage.

Have you find out the reason for the crash? I am so sorry for the victims but unfortunately such disasters happen quite often.
