Two people died Wednesday when a plane traveling from Maryland to Mississippi crashed in eastern Kentucky.

The wreckage was found in a remote, mountainous area. It took rescuers several hours to get to the scene.

The aircraft was flying from Frederick to Olive Branch when it went down about 30 miles from Hazard in Leslie County, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac told The Associated Press.

FAA records show the plane – a Hawker Beechcraft 58 – is registered to Island Trading Ltd., of Woodbine, Md.

The names of the victims have not been released. Nobody else was on board.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Kentucky State Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
