On Wednesday a small plane crashed in Tennessee, resulting in the deaths of three people, according to local authorities cited by ABC News.

The plane went down near the city of Franklin shortly after taking off from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

It was en route to Louisville, Kentucky. The exact cause of the crash remains unknown, as stated by Williamson County Sheriff Mark Elrod.

Authorities are currently investigating the circumstances leading to the crash.

Sheriff Elrod mentioned that it is still too early to determine what might have caused the plane to go down.

Efforts are being made to recover any potential flight data and communication records that might shed light on the incident.

Small plane crashes, though less frequent than commercial aviation accidents, often result in fatalities due to the limited safety features and vulnerability of smaller aircraft.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), pilot error, mechanical failure, and adverse weather conditions are common causes of such crashes.
