WASHINGTON, Dec 18 – Three people died when a small plane crashed in the US state of Indiana, police said on Sunday.

The crash “claimed the lives of all three people on board” as well as a dog, it said. “A second dog survived the crash and showed up at a nearby residence. The dog was taken to a local veterinarian to be treated for injuries,” the police said. They did not release the victims’ identities. The plane was flying from Kansas City, Missouri, to Frederick, Maryland. — AFP
