JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) _ A small plane crashed Sunday, killing all five people aboard.

The twin-engine Piper Cheyenne was flying from Malden, Mo., to Atlanta when the pilot radioed he was having engine trouble and the plane was diverted to McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport in Jackson, Madison County Sheriff David Woolfork said.

The plane crashed just south of the airport in some woods, authorities said.

None of the victims were identified. The Federal Aviation Administration was investigating.
