Six people dead after Texas small plane crash

All six people aboard a small plane died Monday when it crashed while preparing to land in central Texas, authorities said.

The National Transportation Safety Bureau is now investigating the crash of a Beech BE58, a small, a twin-engine piston aircraft. The plane crashed Monday morning while preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport in Kerrville, Texas, according to FAA spokesperson Lynn Lundsford.

The pilot and five people aboard the plane were all killed, said Sgt. Orlando Moreno, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety. He said state law enforcement officials are securing the crash site for FAA and NTSB investigators.

The plane was registered to Jeffrey Weiss, 65, of Houston, CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal reported on the "CBS Evening News." He was at the controls of the aircraft when it went down.

Moreno identified the other victims as 55-year-old Stuart Roben Kensinger, 54-year-old Angela Webb Kensinger, 58-year-old Mark Damien Scioneaux, 55-year-old Scott Reagan Miller and 45-year-old Marc Tellepsen, all of Houston.

Wreckage from the plane was located approximately 6 miles from the airport. The flight had initially departed earlier in the morning from West Houston Airport. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation going forward.
