Indiana State Police say a small aircraft has crashed south of S.R. 62 and east of Gun Club Road in Posey County.

Posey County Coroner Jay Price says the pilot of a single-engine fixed plane died in the crash just after noon. The pilot's identity has not been released. 

Authorities are in the early stages of determining how it went down. Price says the single engine fixed aircraft went down in the field just south of Highway 62. We still have no official word yet on the type of plane it was, where it took off from, or where it was headed. Gun Club Rd. was blocked off since first responders arrived. Price says dispatchers didn't receive any calls from the pilot before it crashed.

"There's nothing that we have found on that. nothing came in to our 911 center. witnesses that had seen the plane go down said it just took a nose dive in to the field,” he says.

Authorities say the FAA and NTSB are on their way to the scene. Gun Club Rd. will be closed off for several hours.
