Authorities say two people died when a small plane crashed at an airport in southeast Michigan

HOWELL, Mich. -- Authorities say two people died when a small plane crashed in southeastern Michigan.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.

Murphy says the two people aboard were both killed. Their names haven't been released.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus reports that a British company, Southern Aircraft Consultancy Inc., appears to have registered the aircraft with the FAA. The company helps non-citizens register their planes in the U.S.

Howell is about 45 miles (70 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.
