The pilot of a single-engine plane was killed on Sunday after crashing into Moosehead Lake in Maine, federal officials said. A passenger was injured, according to WMTW News in Portland.

The crash happened near the town of Rockwood, in Somerset County. “At least one dead and one injured,” said Jim Peters, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Peters said the plane was upside down in the lake after it went down. “I don’t have the type of plane,” he added.

Further information was not immediately available.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the cause of the crash.
