LAYTONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Authorities in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., say one person is dead and one person is injured in a small plane crash in Laytonsville.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Scott Graham says the crash occurred about 7:20 p.m. Monday at Davis Airport. He said one person died and a second person was flown to a trauma center.

Graham says the Federal Aviation Administration was on its way to investigate. Laytonsville is located about 50 miles northwest of Washington.

FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac said in an email that a Beechcraft BE23 was landing when it crashed at the airport.
