GLASGOW, Ky. -- A small, single-engine plane has crashed in Barren County, Kentucky.

A Piper PA32 destined for the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport in Somerset crashed just before 2:30 p.m. near Glasgow, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

"There are four confirmed fatalities," according to Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeremy Hodges. He says the plane hit some tree tops and landed in a wooded area.

The investigation has been halted for the evening due to rain and lack of light, according to the trooper.

The FAA is investigating the crash and will be out at the site on Monday morning. The National Transportation Safety Board will work to determine the possible cause of the accident.

Glasgow is about 95 miles northeast of Nashville.
