 Poinsett County Sheriff Kevin Mulder says two people died when their plane crashed.

Mulder said the dispatch center received a call that a plane had crashed in the northwestern part of the county around 9:44 a.m.

Several agencies responded to the scene as they found a twin-engine plane in a field off Flagstaff Slow Lane between Gropps and Winner.

Mulder said the families of the victims had been notified.

He said, “They are in our prayers.”

He said both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board had been notified.

The bodies were sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner Office in Little Rock.

“The Federal Aviation Administration will determine the type of aircraft when investigators determine the nameplate,” said Elizabeth Isham Curry, a public affairs specialist at the Federal Aviation Administration. Local authorities will release the names and medical conditions of the passengers on the plane.

One of the hunters in the area, Brooke Davis, saw the plane as having problems.

He said, “I was in a duck forest and was hunting and there was, what I thought was a single prop plane, it was very low above the trees and it looked very low and it was very high.” “There was something wrong with one of the engines. After thirty seconds, I couldn’t see it anymore, I heard it, it disappeared, and I saw black smoke rising for 10 or 15 minutes.”

“You know, I just want to say, pray for the family and the people affected. It was a very sad deal and I hope you know that safety and new safety precautions come from this.”

She said the Federal Aviation Administration and NTSB will investigate the cause of the accident, with NTSB providing updates as they become available.

According to Conway Regional Airport, the flight was bound for Conway from Jonesboro and “didn’t work.”

A man who said he saw the plane landing told our reporter, Miranda Reynolds, that he “could hear a fault in the plane’s engine while it was passing by.
