BEAUREGARD, Ala. (AP) - Two people have been killed and two others injured in the crash of a single-engine plane in a pasture in east Alabama.
Lee County Sheriff's Captain Van Jackson said deputies responded to a call late Friday morning regarding a downed plane near the Beauregard community, about half a mile off Lee Road 112.
Sheriff Jay Jones said deputies located the plane by using cell-phone technology. He said the two injured were taken to East Alabama Medical Center.
The sheriff said Federal Aviation Administration officials in Birmingham have been contacted to investigate.
A message left with the FAA was not immediately returned Friday.
