Author: West Kentucky Star Staff

One person died in a plane crash near the Mayfield-Graves County Airport on Monday afternoon.

At 4:55 pm, deputies with the Graves County Sheriff's Office responded and confirmed that the plane crashed in a field near the intersection of Twin Hill Road and Spence Chapel Road, just north of I-69. That intersection is less than a mile from the north end of the airport runway, and about three miles northeast of Mayfield.

Deputies said the pilot died as a result of the crash. The pilot's identity is being withheld until authorities can make contact with family.

Sheriff's office personnel will meet with representatives from the National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday. The NTSB investigates all aviation accidents.
