ROSS COUNTY, Ohio (CNN) – Authorities say one man was killed in a small aircraft crash near a high school in Ross County, Ohio. 

According to the Ross County Sheriff’s Office, spectators at a track and field meet at southeastern local high school reported the crash around 12:45 p.m.

Witnesses told investigators that they heard the plane’s engine cut out and then saw the plane crash.

Investigators say the pilot, identified as 90-year-old Glen Galloway, of Waverly, Ohio, was the only person on board at the time of the crash.

The crash is under investigation. 

“There’s always could be another piece of the puzzle that we’re looking for and that one person could have that piece,” said Don Kelly, of the Chillicothe Highway Patrol.
