Authorities Investigate Minnesota Plane Crash

Posted: Updated:

Federal investigators are trying to determine what caused a small plane to crash into a home in Sauk Rapids, Minn. over the weekend.

Authorities say a preliminary investigation has found that two people were sightseeing the area when a single-engine plane went down, killing the pilot and passenger.

The crash caused a large fire that destroyed the home. The former NDSU football player, Kole Heckendorf, was in the home at the time of the crash. He was able to escape through a window.

Investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were expected to arrive at the crash site later today to investigate.
