Prentiss County emergency director Ralph Lauderdale says a plane crash in northeast Mississippi has killed three people.

He tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that the single-engine plane was flying from Andrews, N.C., to Oxford, Miss., when it crashed about 2 p.m. Sunday. He says he cannot release names until family members are notified.

The accident is still under investigation, but Lauderdale says a severe thunderstorm may have contributed to the accident. The crash occurred south of County Road 4111.

    OMG, that was a terrible comment!! Do you really "feel" that way? Should the gov't have taken their money and given it to you before they died? Then would you not be so bitter?

      Sallie: What a moron you are---and what an unfeeling and uncaring idiot you are regarding this accident----how about thinking of the people that lost their lives, as well as thinking about the families they left behind. People like you are pathetic human beings----
