Multiple were killed, although it's unknown how many people onboard at the time of the crash, according to Deputy Chris Miller with the Christian County Sheriff's Office.

During a brief news conference, officials in Christian County would not say how many people were aboard the plane.

The plane struck a wooded area about eight miles northwest of Hopkinsville - in the southwest corner of the state. He declined to release the identities of the crash victims.

The Sheriff's office says it will secure the scene until the National Transportation and Safety Board investigators arrive.

Kathleen Bergen, spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, told the Associated Press that the Beechcraft Bonanza crashed at about 12:30 p.m. Friday. They also received a call from the Fort Campbell Army Airfield, which had been in voice communication with the pilot. A recovery team is being assembled to remove the wreckage, he said.
