One dead after small plane crash north of Montreal, no other passengers aboard

MONTREAL — Quebec provincial police say a man in his 50s is dead after the small plane he was flying crashed into a lake in Gore, northwest of Montreal.

Provincial police spokesman Sgt. Stephane Tremblay says the man was the only person aboard the plane.

The pilot was removed from the plane by the local fire department and transported to hospital, where he was declared dead.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says it has sent a team of investigators to determine the cause of the crash of the Wag-Aero amateur-built aircraft.

Tremblay says provincial police investigators are on the scene to determine whether any crimes were committed and the coroner’s office is also investigating to determine the cause of the death.
