COLBERT, Okla. — One man died and a woman was critically injured Sunday when a small plane crashed near Colbert, Oklahoma.


Sunday afternoon, Charles S. Fehr, 64, of Westover Hills was flying a Beech V35B fixed wing plane from Michigan to Fort Worth, according to a statement from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. His wife, Vicki W. Fehr, 64, was a passenger. Shortly after 4 p.m., the aircraft lost power for "unknown reasons" and crashed on County Road Winnett, southeast of Colbert.


Mr. Fehr died at the scene from "massive injuries," according to the statement. Responders airlifted Vicki Fehr to the Medical Center of Plano in critical condition with head, arm, leg, and internal and external trunk injuries.


National Transportation Safety Board investigators are currently on the scene and will be for several days, said NTSB Public Affairs Officer Terry Williams. The investigators will examine the aircraft, interview any witnesses and conduct other research.


Williams estimated that a preliminary report, including a possible cause of the crash, will be available in one week to 10 days. It will be about one year before investigators can give a more definitive reason for the cause of the crash, he said.
