Collinsville police now confirm multiple fatalaties as the result of a plane crash just north of that city's downtown area.
The FAA says as many as three people died in the crash. Local authorities have not confirmed that number.
The plane reportedly hit a tree, then crashed in a backyard just short of a home near the intersection of 14th and Broadway about 5:50 p.m. Sunday.
Witnesses on the scene told KRMG news the plane approached from the north, swung around to the south, then nosed over and went straight down.
The house which took the main impact was badly damaged; it was unoccupied and has been up for sale for several months, according to neighbors.
Another home just to the east was also damaged by debris, no one was hurt in that home.
Collinsville Police confirm that no one on the ground was hurt.
However, Collinsville police say the pilot and at least one passenger died in the crash.
The aircraft looked like a fairly small plane, judging from the debris, capable of carrying perhaps a half dozen passengers at most.
The medical examiner showed up on the scene just before 8:00 p.m.
Chief Meteorologist Steve Piltz with the National Weather Service in Tulsa says winds were moderate at the time of the crash with gusts up to 20 m.p.h.
The ceiling was approximately 2,000 feet, and visibility was good, about nine miles.
Piltz says the winds aren't great for flying, but not high enough to cause a plane to crash.
Investigators told KRMG they would not be making any further statements until the NTSB arrives on the scene in the morning.
