SAUK RAPIDS — Authorities are still working on identifying at least one of two victims of a small plane crash in Sauk Rapids.

Reports said one victim has been preliminarily identified, but officials aren’t going to release that information until the IDs of both victims are known.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

The Brumwell RV-6 experimental airplane crashed into a house after it flew near an Allegiant Air flight from Mesa, Ariz.

The NTSB said that authorities will look into whether the second aircraft may have played a role.

Allegiant officials are cooperating with the NTSB.
