FULTON Co., Ark. (KAIT/Gray News) – Two people were killed in a plane crash Sunday night in Fulton County near the Sharp County line.

According to Sheriff Al Roork, the wreckage was found Monday morning. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were called in to investigate the crash. Officials are expected to arrive at the site on Tuesday.

Crews from Fulton and Sharp Counties were called in around 5:30 Sunday night after witnesses reported hearing and seeing a plane go down. Dense fog and nightfall made finding the plane difficult.

The names and genders of the two people killed have not been released. Roork said the bodies were removed from the wreckage Monday.

The cause of the crash is unknown, but Sharp County Sheriff Mark Counts said there was heavy fog throughout the area.
