DENTON, Texas (AP) - Police say one person has died and two others survived the crash of a small plane in a field near a North Texas airport.

Denton police Officer Ryan Grelle says searchers located the wreckage shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday, northwest of Denton Municipal Airport.

Searchers later found the wreckage, with one person dead and another hurt.
The two survivors have been transported to hospitals. No details were available on their conditions.

Police are trying to determine where the flight originated.
