HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area sheriff says two people have died in a small plane crash.

Livingston County Sheriff Mike Murphy says the single-engine Aero Commander M200 craft was attempting to land at Spencer J. Hardy Airport near Howell when it crashed near a runway about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday. He says the only two passengers aboard were killed. Their names haven’t been released.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus reports the plane appears to be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration by an aircraft registration company in the United Kingdom. The registration company, Southern Aircraft Consultancy Inc., assists non-U.S. citizens with legally registering their planes with the FAA
The FAA is investigating the crash.

Howell is about 45 miles (73 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.
