BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say one person was killed and another injured when a single-engine plane crashed in suburban Chicago.

Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil says a woman aboard the single-engine aircraft was killed Wednesday when it slammed into a parking lot outside a Bolingbrook bank. O'Neil says her name is being withheld until a Thursday autopsy establishes a positive identification and relatives are notified.

A man was hospitalized at Loyola University Medical Center with burns. His condition isn't known.

Bolingbrook Police Lt. Michael Rompa says the victims are believed to be the plane's pilot and passenger. Photos showed the plane ablaze after the crash.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory says the plane took off from Georgetown-Scott County Airport in Kentucky and was trying to land at Clow Airport in Bolingbrook.
