Six people lost their lives in a plane crash on Monday shortly before 9 a.m. It is still unclear what caused the crash, and authorities are headed to the scene to investigate.


As reported by Fox News, the twin-engine plane was preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport. The wreckage was found six miles northwest of the airport terminal.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lundsford, confirmed that the Beech BE58 aircraft was en route from West Houston Airport to Kerrville.


The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash, and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) has cordoned off the area; reporters are not allowed close to the crash site.

However, a DPS spokesperson, Sargeant Orlando Moreno, confirmed to reporters that the pilot and five passengers aboard were all killed.

According to Moreno, law enforcement officials are securing the crash site for FAA and NTSB investigators, and a statement will be released in due course.

This is a developing story which we will update once more information becomes available.
