At least two people were killed when a plane crashed into a recreation vehicle park in the Briarcliffe RV Resort.

The crash was reported just after 1 p.m. today at the park, which is located on North Kings Highway. Witnesses reported seeing the plane crash into the park and hearing screams from victims.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said at 1:30 p.m. today that at least two people were killed in the crash.

Pat Dowling, North Myrtle Beach spokesman, said the pilot of the plane and a woman in an RV at the park were killed during the crash. The woman's husband, who also was inside the RV, suffered first-degree burns, Dowling said.

The plane clipped some trees as it crashed and three RVs in the park were damaged, Dowling said. The weather was cloudy with light drizzling rain at the time of the incident.
