Four people died during a small plane crash that happened Saturday evening near Highway 99 in Visalia, according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash occurred at 6:36 p.m. near Road 68 and Avenue 288.

TCSO spokeswoman Ashley Schwarm said there were no survivors.

Deputies were at the scene of the crash, where a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza went down in a field a few miles west of the Visalia Airport.

Cause of the crash was not immediately known. It also was not clear where the plane was heading for.

There were foggy conditions during the time of the crash. But it was not known if such conditions played a factor in the plane’s crash.

The National Transportation Safety Board was notified and expected to arrive to the area Sunday.
