Maryland State Police say two people were killed when their small plane crashed on the state's Eastern Shore.

Action News has learned the plane was rented from Wilmington, Delaware.

Police spokesman Cpl DaVaughn Parker said authorities received a call about 12:44 p.m. Tuesday about a plane crash on Kent Island. He says the aircraft burst into flames when it hit the ground near the Bay Bridge Airport not far from Stevensville. He said the plane is a Van's Aircraft RV-12, which, according to the company's website, is a two-seater that can be built from a kit or in a factory.

Parker says the two people aboard were pronounced dead at the scene. They weren't immediately identified.

The Bay Bridge Airport serves mostly general aviation, not scheduled passenger airlines.
