MARYSVILLE — One person was killed when a single-engine plane crashed into a field Wednesday evening in Marysville.

The pilot crashed into a field around 7 p.m. in the 15700 block of 51st Avenue NE in Marysville city limits. At least one witness reported the plane appeared to be trying to land when it rolled, said Christie Veley, spokeswoman for the Marysville Fire Department.

No other injuries were reported.

A photo tweeted by the Marysville Police Department suggested the aircraft took major damage before coming to a rest in the grass. The scene is about a mile south of the Arlington Municipal Airport.

As of Wednesday evening, it was not clear if the plane had any connection to the nearby airfield, said Kristin Banfield, spokeswoman for the City of Arlington.

Local authorities notified the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, the federal agency that investigates aviation crashes.
