Two dead after plane crashes in Ohio

COSHOCTON, OH (WCMH) - Two people were killed when a small plane crashed in Coshocton County Monday morning. 

According to the FAA a Beechcraft Bonanza was traveling from Elyria, Ohio to Deland Florida when it crashed about five miles west of Blissfied. 

Local law enforcement agents tell the FAA that two fatalities have been reported in the crash. 

The owner of the property where the crash happened says his wife heard an engine noise followed by a thud around 6:30am. It wasn't until a couple hours later when he found the wreckage.

“When I got over there, there was just a small bit of smoke coming up and it was clear that the cockpit was incinerated," said the property owner, who asked not to be identified.

Local law enforcement had been notified earlier that the plane dropped off radar. They were already nearby when the property owner called for help.

The FAA is on the scene to begin the investigation that will be headed by the NTSB.
