BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A single-engine airplane with four people on board crashed Sunday at an airfield in Bryan, Texas, according to Federal Aviation spokesperson Lynn Lunsford.

The Piper PA24 crashed about 2:30 p.m. at Coulter Field Airport, about 85 miles (137 kilometers) northwest of Houston, Lunsford said.

Lunsford referred questions about identities of those on the aircraft and their conditions to local officials. Telephone calls to the Bryan Fire Department and Emergency Management and to Coulter Airfield were not immediately returned to The Associated Press.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, according to Lunsford.
