Two people are dead following a plane crash in Limestone County, according to Limestone County Sheriff Joshua McLaughlin and Limestone County Coroner Mike West.

Chief Michael Carter with the Elkmont Volunteer Fire Department says crews are responding to the scene where a plane crashed in a cotton field on Highway 127 at the intersection of Witty Mill Road.

Carter says two people were on board.
