Two people are dead after a small plane crashed in south-west Ottawa.
Transportation Safety Board spokesman Chris Krepski says the plane's two occupants were found with fatal injuries after the Cessna went down Wednesday evening.
Two investigators from the board were on their way to the scene to begin trying to figure out what caused the plane to crash.
Police say the plane broke into two pieces when it went down in a field in the suburb of Barrhaven, near the new RCMP headquarters.
Fire and emergency crews remain on site.
The crash reportedly caused a number of homes in the area to lose power. Hydro crews were working to fix the problem Wednesday night.
