ATLANTA (AP) -- An emergency management official says two people have died in the crash of an amateur-built experimental biplane in west Georgia.
Carroll County Emergency Management Director Tim Padgett told The Associated Press early Monday that two people were found dead at the scene of the crash, in a wooded area near Carrollton, Georgia. Officials haven't released further details on the deaths.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said late Sunday that preliminary information indicated that two people were on board the aircraft, which was destroyed by fire. She said authorities had not yet confirmed where the airplane had departed before it crashed.
Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board were expected to be at the scene Monday.
