Fatal plane crash in Taylor

There was a fatal plane crash in Taylor Saturday morning.

The crash happened just Southeast of Granger Lake. It was reported off FM 1331 just before 10 a.m.

Officers on scene described the scene as a mangled mess.

Authorities believe at least two people were inside the plane. One of them a flight instructor, the other a trainee.

They are not releasing the number of fatalities at this point.

The twin engine aircraft took off from Georgetown airport.

Brush trucks were able to get to the plane and take care of any smoke.

The FAA is investigating what caused the crash.

"We had a subject that lives over here in the area that heard the plane, saw the engines were having some issues, he looked up and saw the crash," said Trooper DL Wilson with Texas Highway Patrol.

The names of the victims will not be released until next of kin is notified.
