Pilot from Florida killed in central Indiana plane crash

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a pilot from Florida was killed when a small plane crashed in a central Indiana farm field.

The Howard County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened Saturday evening in a soybean field along Indiana 22 just east of Kokomo. Deputies found the twin-engine plane a few hundred yards from the roadway with one person inside who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The county coroner's office identified the pilot as 59-year-old Daniel P. Greenwald, a physician from Tampa, Florida, and said he died from blunt-force trauma in the crash.

The sheriff's department says the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board have been notified.
