Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown confirms that 68-year-old Carl Bray is the pilot identified in Sunday morning's fatal plane crash.

Multiple emergency crews are responding to a small plane crash in western Albemarle County near Crozet.

The winds Sunday night in Crozet would have been enough to buffet the small plane, but the fixed-wing aircraft is created to fly though severe turbulence.

The plane crashed in a cornfield approximately eight miles west of Friona Sunday evening. Flight officials in Panama City, Florida, reported the plane had dropped off the radar in Coshocton County at 7:25 a.m., troopers said.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are trying to determine if the Piper PA-24 Comanche was overloaded and not equipped to carry six people.

The FAA is on the scene to begin the investigation that will be headed by the NTSB.

This article will be updated as additional information is released by authorities.
