ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- The National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary findings in the investigation into a small plane crash in Washington County that killed one person last month.

Gary M. Logan, 54, of Las Vegas, died in the June 30 crash in southern Utah.

Van McKenny, an investigator with NTSB, says officials still haven't determined the cause of the crash.

But the preliminary report says that while en route to Cedar City, Logan's plane crashed in rugged terrain about 16 miles west of St. George. McKenny says flying conditions were ideal on the day of the crash, with clear skies and high visibility.

McKenny says a final report is expected to be published in nine to 12 months.
