    Another person has been reported killed in a small plane crash late Wednesday in Gary, Ind.

    The pilot of the plane and other man died in the crash, police told the Chicago Tribune.

    The single-engine plane crashed around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at 7th Street and Clark Road, near West Gary Lighthouse Charter School and about a mile from Gary/Chicago International Airport.

    "We were very fortunate that none of the children or any of the attendees at the community center were in danger at any time," said Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson.
