Assistant Police Chief Chris Verdeck said the crash was reported around 6 a.m. Wednesday about 5 miles northeast of the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport.

The plane was a Pilatus PC-12. An FAA spokeswoman says the plane was headed to Morristown, N.J.

Verdeck says he doesn’t know if the pilot issued a distress call before the crash.

Verdeck says the pilot was the only person onboard. The pilot’s name has not been released. Verdeck says no one on the ground was hurt.

The plane came across a cemetery and some woods and most of the wreckage appears to be on a softball field.

Verdeck says there is no indication of why the plane crashed.
