BOERNE, Texas (KXAN) - Investigators say a pilot has died after a small plane clipped some trees and a power line before crashing and bursting into flames in Central Texas.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says the accident happened late Sunday afternoon just east of Boerne, about 25 miles northwest of San Antonio.
Trooper Deon Cockrell says the plane was flying low when it crashed along State Highway 46. Cockrell on Monday did not immediately release the name of the victim, who was alone on the homebuilt aircraft.
Authorities are trying to determine what caused the crash.
