FINDLAY -- Authorities in northwest Ohio say that two people were killed in an early morning small plane crash.

The Hancock County sheriff's office says that the crash occurred at about 1:10 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board launched investigations of the single-engine plane crash that killed both people on board.

The Blade newspaper of Toledo reports that the plane crashed into a ditch, along a county road just northeast of the city of Findlay. The falling plane clipped a power line, knocking it down.

The Blade reports that the plane was traveling from Holland, Michigan, to Bluffton, Ohio, near Findlay.

Authorities say the plane carried a male pilot and female passenger.

Names of the dead weren't released pending notification of family.
