COLLINSVILLE, Okla. (AP) – A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration says as many as three people are dead after the crash of a small plane in Collinsville.

Lynn Lunsford says local authorities have told the agency that as many as three were killed in the Sunday evening crash. Lunsford also confirmed that no one on the ground was injured.

Collinsville Police Chief Jimmie Richey told the Tulsa World that more than one person was killed, but didn’t release a specific number.

The FAA says the single-engine aircraft departed Tulsa around 5:50 p.m. Sunday en route to Manhattan, Kan. The plane crashed inside the city limits of Collinsville, about 30 minutes northeast of Tulsa.

The Tulsa World reports the plane crashed into a house neighbors say was vacant and caused a small fire.
