State police say one person has been killed in a small plane crash in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Trooper Bryon Dickson says the accident happened Sunday morning near a small airport in Chestnuthill Township, Monroe County, about 40 miles north of Allentown.

The plane crashed behind a home near the Pegasus Air Park.

Dickson says the call came in shortly before 10 a.m. He says police believe the plane was some kind of experimental aircraft and that it appeared to be a one-seater.

The Federal Aviation Administration is heading to the scene to investigate.
