One person is dead after a small plane crashed in a field near Agnos today. The crash scene was approximately 1.2 miles from U.S. Hwy. 62/412.

Authorities have not released the name of the victim but witnesses at the scene said the victim was male and was not from Arkansas. Only one person was in the plane.

A full report with additional photos from the crash scene will be published in this week's issue of Areawide Media's newspapers.

As of 3:30 p.m. Friday, state troopers were still at the scene awaiting the arrival of FAA officials.

I am an owner of a 601XL and, unfortunately, there have been a few crashes in the past 3-4 years that have some in the community concerned. Without getting into the arguments of why that are being bantered about, I would merely ask if you had more pictures taken of the wreckage and, if so, how can I get them.

This is not ghoulishness on my part, but rather a sincere desire to see the structural members and possible failure points.
