NEW MILFORD, Conn. (AP) – Federal authorities say one person was killed and two others were hurt when a small plane crashed in western Connecticut.

Authorities say the single-engine Cessna 172 crashed near a small private airport in New Milford just before 10 a.m. Friday after taking off from nearby Danbury Municipal Airport.

The National Transportation Safety Board says three people were on board the four-seater.

A medical helicopter also responded to the scene.

No names have been released and the cause is under investigation.
