LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police and fire crews have been on the scene Friday night of a deadly single-engine plane crash in Lincoln County.

The crash happened around 5:00 p.m. in a wooded area along Begley Road, off Pine Grove Road around four miles from Crab Orchard.

Troopers said two men died when the plane crashed.

Troopers said they are waiting on the FAA and NTSB to come to the scene, which will happen Saturday morning. Investigators with those agencies will determine what happened leading up to the crash.

We don’t know the names of these two men, where the flight originated or what its destination was.

Crews have been working Friday evening to secure a perimeter around the crash site. They said they’ve had some challenges because of how dense the woods are and not having much light.

Troopers said it could be a few days before details about what happened are released.

We’ll keep you updated.
