EASTON, Minn. - Sheriff's officials say one person has died in the crash of a small plane in Faribault County.
Sheriffs officials identified the victim as 44-year-old Jeffrey Dean Zabel of Mankato. Zabel was extracted from the aircraft but life savings measures were unsuccessful.
Deputies were called to a field near the intersection of 480th Avenue and 160th Street in Easton about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
Authorities say Zabel was alone in the experimental aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration, NTSB and the Faribault Count Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate the incident.
