SHIRLEY, N.Y. (AP) — An investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board is at the scene of a fatal plane crash on Long Island.
Two people were killed and a third was injured in the crash in Shirley on Sunday afternoon. The single-engine, propeller plane crashed on a residential street. No one on the ground was injured.
NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway says an investigator began surveying the damage on Monday morning. It could take some time to determine a cause.
The plane went down shortly after taking off from nearby Brookhaven Calabro Airport.
Sixty-year-old Jane Unhjem, of Goshen, N.Y., died after being hospitalized with burns. Her 61-year-old husband, Erik, was listed in serious condition Monday at Stony Brook University Medical Center.
Authorities withheld the name of the other person who died pending family notification.
