COLBERT, Okla. -- A plane crashed around 3 p.m. Sunday in Colbert, Okla., killing one, and injuring another.

Vicki Fehr, 64, and Charles Fehr's plane went down along Winnett Road, near Colbert. According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokespersons, the couple was traveling from Springfield, Mo. to Fort Worth.

Vicki Fehr was taken by helicopter to the Medical Center of Plano in critical condition. Charles Fehr was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot reported losing engine power shortly before the crash.

"Just heard this loud bang, turned around and saw just this big cloud of smoke," Charles Montgomery, who witnessed the crash, said.

That's when Montgomery said he called 911. "I rushed over to see what had happened and all I could see was the pilot," Montgomery said.

The plane flew right over Jose Oagan's house.

"I was so scared, I never saw anything like that before," Oagan said.

The cause of the crash has not been released. OHP troopers, the Bryan County Sheriff's Office and Colbert agencies all responded.

"We're securing the scene, doing our investigation that we're required to by Oklahoma state law and we have notified the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) and the FAA, and they will be having representatives sent to our location and we will go from there," Trooper Steve Nabors, said.

The NTSB is expected to start investigating the scene Monday afternoon.
