Police say four people have died in the crash of a small plane in south-central Kentucky.

The Federal Aviation Administration says in a statement that a Piper PA32 crashed near Glasgow at 2:21 p.m. CT Sunday. The FAA says the plane was heading to the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport in Somerset when it struck multiple treetops in a wooded area.

Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Jeremy Hodges says three people were pronounced dead at the scene and a fourth victim was later pronounced dead at a hospital in Bowling Green.

The Barren County Coroner confirms the victims who died at the scene as attorney Scott Foster, Dr. Kyle Stewart, a local dentist, and Somerset Police chaplain Doug Whitaker. The Warren County Coroner confirms the person who died at a local hospital was 15-year-old Noah Foster, Scott Foster's son. Autopsies for all four victims are scheduled for Monday morning. Friends tell WKYT the four were traveling back to Kentucky after a hunting trip in Tennessee.

Hodges says part of the plane was lodged between large branches in a tree.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Terry Williams says NTSB investigators planned to arrive at the site on Monday.
