Four Killed in Milton Plane Crash

By  | 

Four people are dead in the crash of a light plane in Santa Rosa County late Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the four were killed when a small plane crashed into a residential area shortly after takeoff from Milton. Witnesses say the plane left the ground, circled the airport, then appeared to lose power.

Airport officials say the plane went down into a neighborhood just off the runway, but no one on the ground was hurt and no buildings damaged.

It's not yet clear who was on the plane.
