2 killed in small plane crash near Ohio school

CINCINNATI Officials say two people have been killed when a biplane crashed near a football scrimmage at an Ohio high school.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the single-engine plane took off Friday night from West Harrison Airport, and crashed within minutes. Sgt. Clint Arnold says it wasn t immediately known if the plane lost power.

Officials say the pilot and a female passenger died in the crash near McNicholas High School in Harrison.

Parent Ed Meyer says he saw the plane go down as he was watching his son play football. He says it was so sad to see, but there was nothing you could do.

The names of the deceased have not been released.

Officials say the National Transportation and Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.
