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.

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