Pensacola, Fl

 A small plane crashed near Tennessee airport on Tuesday, killing two people and seriously injuring another.

The Federal Aviation Administration said three people were on a single-engine Piper PA-28 that crashed near Warren County Memorial Airport in McMenville.

The plane took off from the airport and crashed in a nearby field, said Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board. A witness told investigators that the plane was apparently trying to return to the airport when it crashed.

The identities of the two dead men were not released immediately. Knudson said the third person on board was seriously injured.

The NTSB is investigating the cause of the accident.

McMinnville is located about 80 miles (128 kilometers) northeast of Nashville.
