ST. PAUL -- A single-engine plane crash in northwestern Hennepin County resulted in the death of one person Saturday, Feb. 22.

The Hennepin County sheriff’s office responded to a report of a possible airplane down about 11:15 a.m. in the area of the Crow Hassan Park Reserve.

First responders found the airplane in a remote area of the reserve. There was one person inside who was dead, police said.

“Our deepest sympathy goes to the friends and family of the deceased,” Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson said, “we will continue to work with federal and local investigators to gather additional information.”

The sheriff’s office plans to preserve the scene until federal investigators arrive.

Located on the Crow River, the reserve is in Hanover, Minn.
