Updated: 1 dead in plane crash near Terrell in Kaufman County

Posted: Updated:

TERRELL (CBSDFW.COM) – A single-engine plane crashed Monday afternoon in field in Kaufman County, one person has been confirmed dead.

The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department says the aircraft went down south of I-20, just outside of Terrell – not far from the Terrell Municipal Airport.

Because the plane was consumed by fire after the crash, authorities do not know what type of aircraft it was or exactly how many people were on board.

Texas Department of Public Safety officers have secured the scene and the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.

FAA spokesperson Lynn Lunsford said that the pilot may have been performing aerobatics before the crash.

More on this story as it develops.
