GARVIN COUNTY, Okla. -- The National Transportation Safety Board is in Garvin County on Monday investigating a small plane crash that killed two men on Saturday near the town of Lindsay, Oklahoma.

Authorities say William Jackson and Joe Grimes died when the single-engine plane they were in crashed and burned near the Lindsay Municipal Airport.

Jackson was a local veterinarian, a school board member and pilot.

Grimes was also a pilot and experienced mechanic.

"We’ll be on scene for most of the rest of the day until we coordinate to have the aircraft removed to a secure salvage facility," Leah Yeager of the NTSB said.

A preliminary report on what caused the crash should be available next Friday. NTSB records show more than 46 people have died in SR-22 model plane crashes since 2003.
