Crews on the scene of a small plane crash in Kanawha County confirm two people on board have died.

The crash was reported near Riverside just before 5 p.m. Friday.

The Federal Aviation Administration tells they believe the plane is a Piper PA-32. The plane departed Akron Fulton International Airport in Ohio.

The FAA says the plane was headed to Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport in South Carolina.

Two people were on board the plane when it crashed.

The Aviation Technology Center out of Indianapolis says they had been in contact with the pilot, who was trying to detour due to weather.

The FAA is not releasing the aircraft N-number until after emergency officials on the scene release the names of the people killed in the crash.
