UPDATE: Fatal plane crash in Stephens County

A plane crash in Stephens County was fatal for two people Wednesday evening.  Investigators identify the two killed in the crash as 21 year old Kendall Spivey and 20 year old Dallas Alaniz of Marlow. 

It happened a half mile southeast of Bray near State Highway 29 and Duncan Lake Road.  The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says in addition to the person who was killed immediately in the crash, the other was seriously injured and flown by helicopter to the hospital where he later died.

One witness reported hearing what sounded like some kind of engine malfunction.  The first man on the scene says he was working in his field when he noticed the plane was in trouble and then it crashed into some trees when, it appears, Spivey brought it in for an emergency landing.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane is a Cessna 172, fixed wing, single engine aircraft.  Their records do not show who owned the plane and it's registration is still pending and the FAA spokesman says the plane is a Cessna 172, fixed wing, single engine plane.

According to Dallas Alainiz's grandmother, the young man was a hobby pilot and owned three planes, including the one that crashed.  She says he spent all of his life in Bray and graduated from Bray High School in 2006.  He had recently moved to Duncan.

The National Transportation Safety Board continues to investigate the details of the crash.  7News will keep you updated as we know more.
