UPDATE: Authorities say one person died when a small plane carrying two people crashed in eastern Iowa.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said the single-engine plane crashed near Clutier on Wednesday morning. Clutier is roughly 90 miles northeast of Des Moines.
Witnesses told KCRG-TV9 that the plane was flying low over the area prior to the crash.
Cory says the person killed in the crash will be identified by local officials. Local police and fire officials did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
FAA records show the plane was registered to a Traer, Iowa, man.
Bill Huntley with the Traer Fire Department says crews from his department were called in Wednesday morning to help Clutier firefighters respond to the plane crash.
