The Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a private plane crashed near Collinston on Sunday afternoon.
The Sheriff tells KTVE/KARD that the plane crashed in a field near the Morehouse Parish Detention Center around 4:40 Sunday afternoon.
The Sheriff also confirms that 2 people have died as a result of the crash.
We do not know if they were the only 2 people on board at the time.
The crash also knocked out power at the prison.
We have a crew on scene and we are working to gather more details.
The names of the two killed will not be released until the Sheriff’s Office notifies their families.
The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) is expected to conduct an investigation this week into the crash.
