GREELEYVILLE, S.C. (AP) – Federal investigators are trying to determine why a small plane crashed in South Carolina, killing the two people on board the aircraft.

The plane came down in some woods in Williamsburg County around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday near Greeleyville.

Williamsburg County Deputy coroner said the victims were 66-year-old Henry Haddock of Salters and 47-year-old Kenneth Britton of Summerton. Haddock owned the plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause of the crash.
