A 56-year-old Maryland man was killed Sunday when a small plane crashed into a cornfield near York, Pa., York County authorities reported.

The man, who has not been identified pending notification of his family, was the lone occupant of a Piper PA-28 180 that crashed about 12:42 p.m. near the York airport in Jackson Township.

The National Transportation Safety Board announced on Twitter that it would investigate the crash.

The small plane crash is the second to occur in the township in the last two months. A California man died Dec. 22 when his plane ran out of gas while he was attempting to land his Cessna 441 at the York airport.
