A father and daughter from Shallowater died in a plane crash near Abernathy Thursday night.

Department of Public Safety Troopers say the small plane crashed about seven miles NorthEast of Aberathy just after six o'clock. Timothy Vaughn of Shallowater, his 8-year-old daughter and their family dog were killed in the crash.

Corporal John Gonzalez said the Hale County Sheriff's Office was first to be notified. DPS troopers will set a perimeter around the crash site, however the FAA will be in charge of the investigation. "We don't know what could have happened prior to plane crash, why it went down all of a sudden," Corporal Gonzalez said.

The small plane was a beech craft. NewsChannel 11 will continue to follow this investigation and bring you the latest as it becomes available.
