Plane Crashes Near Shaver Lake; One Dead

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

Authorities say at least one person is dead after a small plane crashed near Shaver Lake.

The plane went down around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, about 150 yards from the intersection of Nevins and Dinkey Creek Road.

Fresno County sheriff's deputies said the body of one person was found inside the plane.

It's not known how many people were on board.

Search and rescue crews were called in to look for any other victims or survivors, sheriff's spokesman Chris Curtice said.

The twin engine plane took off from Salinas Saturday evening and was on its way to Nebraska, officials said.

Deputies were able to get the aircraft's tail number from the wreckage, and after contacting the State Office of Emergency Services they were advised that the plane had been missing, Curtice said.

The NTSB and FAA have been notified of the crash.
