One person is dead after a small plane crashed in southern Indiana Saturday afternoon, according to Indiana State Police.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the crash. 

The crash occurred just before 3:30 p.m. in a soybean field on Flint Ridge Road, in New Washington, Indiana.

There was only one person on board the single-engine aircraft, according to a FAA spokeswoman. 

The plane departed from Bowman Field in Louisville to an unknown destination. 

Debris could be seen scattered in a field in that area.

Both the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the Indiana State Police responded to the scene.
