Confirmed Dead After Plane Crashes At Arizona Golf Course

The National Transportation Safety Board arrived at the scene of the crash and is investigating.

The identities of those killed in the Monday night's fiery crash in Scottsdale have yet to be released.

SPD reports that the NTSB is leading the investigation.

Six people are dead after a small plane crashed and caught fire on a golf course in Scottsdale, police said.

Scottsdale Airport and the golf course are across the street from each other near Hayden and Bell roads.

Investigators at the site Tuesday morning examined the burned wreckage next to a tree. The Scottsdale police department confirmed that although there were no survivors onboard, no one was hurt on the ground.

Police say multiple people onboard died, but the exact number was not immediately released. A single-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff on Monday evening after leaving the airport, the authorities said.

Nobody on the ground was affected when the plane, a Piper PA-24 went down, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The crash happened at the home of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, one of the more popular tournaments on the PGA Tour.

Witness Versace King said he heard the plane stall, followed by a loud noise and explosion.
