A family of four lost their lives when a small aircraft crashed into the edge of a woodline not far from Wisconsin's Monroe Municipal Airport.


The Sheriff's Office released a statement on their Facebook page. They advised residents to avoid the Monroe-Sylvester Road area to allow emergency responders ease of access.

Authorities investigated the matter and the roadway was closed. Sheriff Mark Rohloff also asked motorists to be 'respectful of both responders and those involved in the crash.'

He anticipated that the area would be shut down for several days while the investigation continues, adding that the terrain is difficult to navigate


According to Today's TMJ4, 911 calls started streaming in at midday on Sunday when eyewitnesses saw a single-engine Cessna 182T aflame in the air before crashing.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the plane crashed in the town of Sylvester, and debris was "scattered over a rather large area there, in the trees and the grass."

Firefighters from several different departments rushed to the scene and a first responder told reporters that "the plane is fully engulfed."

"You can see the smoke. We've got heavy black smoke coming. The plane is fully engulfed. It's a mess, I'm gonna get out and check."

The plane departed from Kenosha airport earlier that day. The pilot was a grandmother and her three passengers were her daughter and two granddaughters, aged 17 and 13.


All four died at the scene of the crash. Their names have not been released to the public, but officials learned that the plane was registered to a Kenosha resident.

Family members of the deceased were tracking the fight plan. When they lost contact, they reported it to the Sheriff's office immediately.
