McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann says the plane went down in a field about four miles north of Glencoe and broke apart. He says there are no survivors in the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the crash was reported at 11:12 a.m. Wednesday. Sheriff Rehmann, at the scene of the crash, says witnesses reported hearing a popping noise and then heard the impact of the plane crashing.

Rehmann says the medical examiner is at the scene. Hutchinson Leader editor Doug Hanneman, also at the scene, says wreckage is scattered over a couple hundred yards in the field. Hanneman says local firefighters have extinguished the burning wreckage.
