Four people are dead following a plane crash in Wellington County Friday night.

Wellington County OPP spokesperson Keith Robb tells 570News the plane, a single engine Cessna 172,  was carrying a student and three other passengers, “All I can say at this point is there’s three males and a female. They’re trying to confirm the identity of all four and notify the next of kin.”

Police say they received the call at 8:39 p.m. and that the plane crashed into a cornfield in Moorefield north of Conestogo Lake.
