CHARLESTOWN, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say one man is dead and another injured after their small plane crashed in New Hampshire.

WMUR-TV reports the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident, which occurred in Charlestown just after 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The two men were the plane’s only occupants. Local police say one of the men died at the scene, but the other was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
