HURRICANE — A plane crashed Thursday afternoon and police confirmed two people were killed.
The accident occurred around 1:30 p.m. near 1365 S. 3325 West, according to Hurricane City police. The St. George Consolidated Dispatch Center received a call about a single-engine plane that was seen traveling very low before it crashed in a remote area between Sullivan Knoll and Floratech Road, police said. A resident who lives in the area called in the crash and officials from Hurricane City police and the Hurricane City Fire Department were dispatched to the scene.
"It took a little bit to find exactly where the plane had gone down," Hurricane City Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said. "But they were able to locate a plane that had crashed."
Officials said a man and woman were killed in the collision, but details about what caused the accident were not immediately known. The victims have not yet been identified, pending family notification.
The area of the crash is a fairly remote area that has a lot of undeveloped private property, Buell said.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
