JACKSONVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

A woman died and a man was airlifted after a plane crashed in Jacksonville on Saturday.

The plane was found in a wooded area off Whites Gap Road and Scott Lane. The woman who died is the daughter of the pilot.

The woman has been identified as 27-year-old Stefanie Fasselin of Peachtree City, Georgia. Officials say she is the daughter of the pilot of the plane, who was transported to a Huntsville hospital for treatment. No word on his condition.

The FAA says the Beech BE-35 aircraft collided with a tree and caught fire around 8 p.m.

The NTSB investigator is on scene this afternoon examining the wrecking and documenting the scene. We're told there's no time table for the fact-gathering stage due to the wreck happening in a remote area. It could take 12-18 months for a final report, but we're told a preliminary report could be released by the end of this week or early next.
