FREDERICKSBURG, Texas -

Authorities say a small plane has crashed less than a mile from the runway of a Texas Hill Country airport.

The Texas Department of Public Safety was notified shortly after 1:30 p.m. Thursday that a Cessna 182 went down near Fredericksburg, about 60 miles north of San Antonio.

Fredericksburg city spokeswoman Juli Bahlinger says the aircraft crashed in a pasture near the city's airport. The Federal Aviation Administration says the single-engine plane had departed Spinks Airport in Fort Worth.

Justice of the Peace Louis Rech says both of those aboard, a man and a woman, were killed. He said no identities were available pending an autopsy.

Investigators for the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are en route to the scene.
