OWASSO (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a small plane crashed near Owasso, killing at least one person.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the multi-engine plane crashed shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday about five miles north of Tulsa International Airport, where it was headed. The plane took off from Salina, Kan.

Highway Patrol Capt. George Brown says the National Transportation Safety Board will take over the investigation.

Airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins says the pilot reported engine problems.

Brown says troopers found the aircraft in a wooded area and will remain on the scene until federal investigators arrive on Monday.
