Carroll County, Ind (WLFI)-- Neighbors near the plane crash in Carroll County last night said they felt the ground shake after a plane crash last night.
Carroll County Sheriff, Tobe Leazenby, confirmed three people are dead from Thursday night's crash around 8 PM.
Green Bay CBS affiliate WFRV reported a prominent Wisconsin dairy farmer among the dead.
John Pagel and his son-in-law Steve Witcpalek were two of the people on board. A statement from the family to WFRV said the pilot was Nathan Saari. Only Pagel and Witcpalek have been formally identified by investigators.
This happened near the intersection of county roads 600 South and 500 West.
According to State Police, the plane was a Cessna 441 Conquest Turboprop that had taken off from Eagle Creek Airpark in Indianapolis.
The plane was headed towards Green Bay, Wisconsin when a neighbor said he heard the plane flying near his house.
Ralph Addy said he saw something in the sky passing by his house.
"I could see the red light on the front of the plane as it was going down, and that same thing is staying in my mind every time I think about it, and that's all I remember about it all night long, we're seeing that red light as it was going down." Addy said.
Indiana State Police are still investigating the scene and have yet to confirm the third victim's name.
