A small plane crashed through trees, then into a mobile home park before bursting into flames, killing at least one person late Wednesday, according to authorities and witnesses.
WIS TV this morning reported that the coroner handling the case is now saying three bodies were found at the scene.
Nicole Aiello, spokeswoman for the city of North Myrtle Beach, said the crash, which happened around 8:55 p.m., occurred on Toucan Road inside the Creekside Mobile Home Park.
Aiello said the plane had left Grand Strand Regional Airport. It was unclear where it was heading or how many people were on board. Aiello described it as a small private plane. She could not say if the plane was locally owned. There were no survivors from the plane, she said.
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration were expected to be on the crash scene early this morning.
