A Spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said as many as three people are dead after a small plane crashed yesterday in Collinsville, Okla. also confirming that no one on the ground was injured.

The FAA says the single-engine aircraft departed Tulsa around 5:50 p.m. Sunday en route to Manhattan, Kan. The plane crashed inside the city limits of Collinsville, about 30 minutes northeast of Tulsa.

The Tulsa World reports the plane crashed into a house neighbors say was vacant and caused a small fire.
