One person died and another person was injured when a small plane crashed Wednesday morning in eastern Iowa.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said the single-engine plane crashed in a field near Clutier, about 90 miles northeast of Des Moines.

Tama County Sheriff Dennis Kucera says when officials arrived at the crash site, the plane's passenger was trying to get the pilot out of the plane. Kucera says the pilot died and the passenger was taken to a burn center for treatment of his injuries.

Their names have not been released. Kucera says both the pilot and passenger were from the community, and they were likely out flying for fun.
