At about 10 pm CT Monday night, authorities were alerted about a plane crash in Brazos County. Officials say the single engined plane was flying from Atlanta, Georgia to Waco, Texas when it crashed and killed five people on board.
According to authorities of the Texas Department of Public Safety, severe weather was moving through the area at the time and may have played a role in the crash.
The pilot of the plane contacted a control tower in Texas to report the deteriorating conditions.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the exact cause of the crash Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, blizzard conditions stretching from eastern New Mexico to Kansas lead to snow clogged highways on Monday. The treacherous driving conditions turned deadly, killing six people on the roads.
