HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Authorities in Hollywood responded to a deadly small plane crash Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened at around 12:45 p.m. in the area of 450 N. Park Road, just north of Hollywood Boulevard and near a popular shopping plaza containing a Target and a Publix.

The plane appears to be a banner plane and it caught fire after crashing. Viewer photos and video showed the plane fully engulfed as firefighters arrived.
The Federal Aviation Administration identified the plane as a single-engine Piper PA-25-235.

City spokesperson Joann Hussey said one person onboard died. Officials didn’t report any additional injuries.

Police spokesperson Deanna Bettineschi said at a news conference that North Park Road was expected to be closed for the next few hours.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate, according to the FAA.
