Two people were killed Sunday after a small plane crashed in southeast South Dakota this afternoon, near the Minnesota border.
Harold Timmerman, emergency management director for Lincoln County, S.D., said the plane apparently had mechanical problems when it went down in a soybean field near the town of Tea, S.D., 11 miles southwest of Sioux Falls.
"Some neighbors saw it happen - or saw they plane and then saw it flying real low and heard a noise, like it may have crashed, Timmerman said. "(They) came out to investigate and found the plane and called 911."
Federal investigators are expected to visit the crash site tomorrow.
