1 dead after plane crash in Fluvanna County

One person was confirmed dead at the scene of a plane crash in Fluvanna County Sunday morning.

The plane was reported to be a smaller aircraft with only one passenger.

Virginia State Police say they were alerted to the crash off Miles Jackson Road near Palmyra just before 9 a.m. Sunday.

The 200 block of the roadway was blocked off to traffic throughout Sunday morning as local and state authorities investigated the scene. Witnesses said debris from the crash could be seen scattered in the wooded area off the road and fire crews extinguished a fire in what remained of the plane’s main cabin before investigators could move in.

Both the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have been notified of the crash.
