Report: 4 killed in plane crash near lake in South Carolina

WALHALLA, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a small plane crashed near a lake in South Carolina, killing all four people on board. 

Oconee County Emergency Services Deputy Chief Adam Williams said the crash happened Friday on the shore of Lake Hartwell in a remote area. 

Williams said first responders found debris on the ground and in the water before reaching the site. He said no one survived.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Berger said in an email that the wreckage of the Piper PA-32 was found on the Georgia-South Carolina border. She said the plane was headed to the airport in Clemson, South Carolina, when air traffic controllers lost contact with the flight.

She said she did not have information yet on who owned the plane or a possible cause of the crash.
