One person died in a plane crash near Owasso Sunday.
A plane that crashed in Owasso this weekend has been linked to Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe's son, Perry.
The plane, a 1974 Mitsubishi MU-2B-25 is registered with the FAA to Intermountain Powersports Inc. out of Salt Lake City, Utah. The company Anasazi Winds LLC filed registration paperwork with the FAA in September.
Perry is listed as an owner of Anasazi Winds. The company has the same address listed as his doctor's office in Tulsa.
The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a press conference near the crash site Monday evening.
OHP Capt. George Brown says the crash was reported shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday near the north Tulsa suburb and that the National Transportation Safety Board will take over the investigation.
Tulsa International Airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins says the airport received an alert from a pilot who reported engine problems and was trying to land at the airport. Higgins says the aircraft crashed about five miles north of the airport.
Brown says troopers found the aircraft in a wooded area and will remain on the scene until federal investigators arrive on Monday.
