Four people were killed when a small plane crashed in the Adirondack Mountains, New York state police said.

The aircraft was destroyed and the bodies of the four people were located among the wreckage in the crash about a half-mile northwest of the Adirondack Airport in Lake Clear.

Their identities have not been released.

Authorities were notified of the downed civilian aircraft last night. State police said the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration were investigating.
